Child. Underweight, addicted to junk food, gland in left neck. FNAC test revealed reactive lymphadenitis. Advice

Hi, My daughter weight is 8.50 Kg and she is going to complete his 2 year in May 2013.
The problem is she is not like to eat any food, so we don’t know what to do, she is also not like to drink even milk. She only like few things...coffee, some snacks like cacaos, chips. Due to this she is now under weight.
We found she had some Gland in her left neck. We have taken the FNAC (Cervical Node) test. They provide the below result.

SMEAR SHOWS SCATTERED MATURE LYMPHOCYTES, ACTIVATED LYMPHOCYTES OCCASIONAL NEUTROPHILS AND SCATTERED HISTIOCYTES IN A REACTIVE NODAL BACKGROUND.

IMPRESSION:

FEATURES ARE SUGGESTIVE FOR REACTIVE LYMPHADENITIS.

Can you please advise about the result? Also can you please advise what should we do for my daughter health improvement. We have taken complete test like blood and scan test. During the scan test only we found the Gland on her neck. Please advice.

Allergist and Immunologist 's  Response
A CHILD NEEDS MOTHERS MILK TILL 2 YEARS AND HE DOENOT NEED ANY MILK AFTER 2 YEARS
BECAUSE ANIMAL PROTEIN IS NOT COMPETIBLE WITH HUMAN PROTEINS
AS MILK IS ANIMAL PROTEIN BECAUSE WE GET FROM ANIMALS IT REACTS AND CAUSES SWELLING IN STOMACH IN MANY CHILDREN
DUE TO THAT CHILD STOMACH IS ALWAYS FULL AND THE CHILD DOES NOT WANT TO TAKE EVEN OTHER FOOD
IF YOU WITHDRAW MILK AND DIARY PRODUCTS COMPLETELY THE EFFECTS WILL BE REVERSED AND CHILD WILL AUTOMATICALLY ACCEPTS OTHER FOOD AS SWELLING IN STMACH SUBSIDES
ADD JUICES VEGETABLES SOUP CERALS CHILD WILL ACCEPT EVERYTHING WHEN YOU WITHDRAW THE MILK AND DIARY

REACTIVE HYPERPLASIA IS ENLARGEMENT OF GLAND DUE TO RECURRENT INFECTIONS AND THERE IS NO DANGEROUS THING IN THIS REPORT
WHEN YOU WIYTHDRAW FOOD AND DIARY THE RECURENCE OF INFECTION WILL GO AND LYMPH NODE WILL COME TO THE ORIGIONAL SIZE AFTER SOMETIME

Pediatrician Dr. Balaji Chinnasami's  Response
Hi dear,
There is nothing serious to worry about the reports. The glands might be due to head lice, dandruff, or some infections of mouth but nothing serious. If she is eating junk not other food then she is picky eater, she doesn't have a disease. No medicines are going to cure her habit. Only family adjustments help, like adding ghee to food helps in gaining weight. Avoid encouraging junk food. Try giving home made healthy snacks in between. believe me change is not going to happen in a single day. Try multivitamin syrup.

Take care
