In brief: Energy
Exercise to improve pulmonary endurance with progressively increasing short demanding exercises like wind sprints and cross training.
Consider lots of b vitamins and aminos for energy.

In brief: Exercise
Vitamins won't help unless she has a certain deficiency, although a children's multivitamin won't hurt.
Proper exercise, a healthy diet, avoidance of stress (balance in her life), and about 9 hours of sleep per night are all necessary to promote energy. There's nothing magic about it so don't look for an easy fix.

Depending on where you live, many are deficient in vitamin D and some will feel more energy with a supplement. If she does not eat fish omega 3 oil, a good quality supplement is important. Also, many will have more energy with a good quality B complex. Be sure to get products that are independently tested for heavy metals and other contaminants. Stretching, such as with yoga or tai chi help also.
