hi.. i can understand your concern for your young daughter..i suggest get her thyroid checked and ask her to join a gym for light weight training/ circuit training regime.. this will help increase her BMR.. give her small meals every 2-3 hours like fruits, nuts, salads, dry roasted snacks..make sure she has salads before lunch and dinner.. keep her dinner light like soups, salads, chicken/ fish, avoid rice/ breads at night..she should drink atleast 2 litres water/ day..ask her to rest enough..
