Answer:
if only spicy foods have been restricted, then you can offer her more variety. Give whatever she has been eating, without spices. Be it cereal like rice, chapatti, upma, khichdi etc. or milk products, dals. Give her the fruits and vegetables she can tolerate. If you give her variety, the chances of acceptance are high. If she is preferring liquids, then give more of soups, juices, coconut water, buttermilk. Hope thi shelps.
