I do understand your concern and apprehensions. Anemia in this age group is due to contribution because of both childhooh physiological anemia along with dietary deficiency of iron. I would also like to reassure you about slightly elevated SGPT, in the presence of other normal Liver function test, isolated elevation of SGPT is not significant and requires no further attention. It will reduce over period of time. Coming to the diet advise i would advise the following 1. Substitute Jaggery for Sugar. Jaggery has rich Iron content and is helpful. Also giving her grounded groundnut and jaggery along with milk will be beneficial. 2. Diet Containing Ragi: Ragi Porridge or Ragi paste will be very helpful 3.
