Underweight: We cannot suggest a diet to your child because we don't know much about her diet now and her eating habits. Secondly, perhaps, she needs evaluation to find out why she's underweight to rule out problems that may interfere with her metabolism. She will need to work with her pediatrician and he can refer her to a dietitian if needed.
