hi Suman soni ! u need to give her salads, fruits and vegetables , whole grain cereals, legumes and seeds . besides this reduce milk intake to twice in a day . to the flour add chana atta, or ragi atta or soyabean atta or some other mix to make it rich in iron and protein. also u could add, previous night left over dals and make prantha with it. try home made paneer kofta, burji, shahi paneer etc. u could involve her and seek her innovative ideas in cooking.. such as plating, adding flavor . praise her for her help and give her the credit for making it so delicious. by doing so she would like to do lil research on ingredients , their nutritional value and would taste new dishes. hope this helps!
