Hi,
Any illness,anemia,tiredness and lack of sleep can cause dark circles under the eyes.
Give her some time to catch up her appetite.
Give her some general tonic prescribed by your doctor like A- Z or vidaylin M.
Good luck

Hi
Dark circles under eyes uncommon in children but some times because of lack of proper sleep,nutrition and rest and because of stress they develop dark circles under eyes. Balanced diet should be given in the form of sufficient carbohydrates,protein,fats ,vegetables and green leafy vegetables and seasonal fruits. And encourage her to eat oranges, carrots and papaya fruits. If needed multivitamin and micrinutrient supplimentation started after consulting your doctor.
