Dear Piya,
I understand your concern,
I would recommend trying to add some sugar and fat to her diet.
Possibly some grated dry fruits, brown sugar etc. may help.
Also monitory her height and look for weight gain.
Juices may help too
Finally talk to a dietitian, if your concerns are not addressed,
Warm regards
