No general rx: Appetite in a kid usually represents their state of health & pattern of growth. There is no "stimulant" advised at this age. Some growth happens in spurts & their feeding follows the peaks & lows of the rate. If you feel she is to slow gaining weight have her evaluated to see if there is a medical problem.
