hi Rav Arora! try and bring changes in the dietary pattern as well as lifestyle of your child. add more of fibre and fluids to her diet. it could be added in the form of salads, beans and legumes , fruits such as berries , avocado , papaya to child's Diet. reduce the intake of processed food items and junk food which are rich in carbohdyrates and fat. refined flour and ready to eat food should be reduced to minimal say once in a week. talk to her and discuss with her the long term effects of taking junk food and reach a consensus where she needs to have what u decide for six days in a week and on one day of her choice she can have anything she wants. there should be a gap of at least 2 hours between dinner and time to go to bed at night. she can have a glass of warm milk before sleeping if she wants. work on her lifestyle, let her do moderate physical activity by either taking her to the park or do cycling or skating or judo/taekwondo/dance or any other sport or activity as per her interest. u could also join the sports club along with her , this will motivate her to continue with her efforts. hope this helps!

my son has same issue but we make it a point that he drinks plenty of water. we observed that the days he didn't get enough intake of water, he didn't go that day. so apart from ensuring his food has fibre content we also ensure that he drinks adequate amount of water.
