this is one of the common problem. but onething you shouldnt worry much if she is not having any specific complains. check her weight periodically, if not gaining weight she need work up to find out any systemic cause. some tips- try eating together. make her involve in making diet and serving. try to give nutritious foods which improves weight like egg,milk, ghee butter.
