All children need special attention. Try making her eat with different recipes, and reward her with foo dof her choice if she eats well the entire week.

Children usually eat when they are hungry, and they need attention. Giving them frequent eatables will kill their appetite. Try to keep regular timing for providing food to your child. Chocolates etc will kill appetite. Try Liv.52 syrup half an hour prior to food. Happy feeding.
