In brief: Probably fine

Some children get very rosy cheeks.
If she's active fine, drinking fine, peeing and pooping fine, then she's fine.

In brief: Allergic reaction?

If the redness is symmetrical and limited to both cheeks, it is probably benign.
Sometimes food allergies can cause bright red cheeks...Just see if there is a pattern to the development of the redness.
