Pediatrician 's  Response
Please remember that normal weight varies widely. I hope she is not anemic and is getting medicines for worms regularly. If she is active and playful you need not worry. If you want you can give some supplements like Horlicks or Complan or any other with milk. Otherwise let her eat what all members of your family eat. Everyone has likes and dislikes. There is no need to force her to eat any particular food.
