Answer:
You should include immunity boosting food in her diet to help build her resistance to infections - including fruits and vegetables to provide vitamin C and protein sources like dal, egg etc. The blogs below will give you more ideas- https://www.parentune.com/parent-blog/8-immunity-boosting-foods-for-your-child/599?lang=en https://www.parentune.com/parent-blog/dealing-with-anaemia-the-vegetarian-way/646 She may require iron supplementation - check with your doctor. For increasing haemoglobin from her diet- you can give her bajra/dalia porridge. Use dates/jaggery to sweeten her food. Do give green leafy vegetables soup. You should give liver, eggs if non vegetarian . Include beans, soybeans, black chana, citrus fruits, raisins etc in the diet. I hope these give you some ideas. All the best and do keep us posted.
