hi,thanks for query.Yes,she is underweight,still there is nothing to worry.Give her food rich in protein like pulses,daliya can give her vegetable soups,fruit juice etc.Apart from this add drops of ghee in food like dal-rice etc,that you are giving to her,this will increase its calorie value without increasing quantity.Please give her traditional homemade things are better then then any special formula feeds.Please also look for worm infestation as this common,if it is there you need to give her medicines for this,please talk to your doctor.

wishing her good health.
