  • You can help her by giving her protein shakes in chocolate flavor, they also have other flavors.... these are tasty, I have always been a bad eater, not too fond of food per say, but remember a low caloric diet is good for you, but she is a growing girl, so try to get her protein through something that looks and taste like a chocolate milk shake. Whey protein is the best, been doing this for years now and this gives me the nutrients I lack in food.

  • What about getting her to cook with you. Maybe if she prepares meals herself she'll want to eat them. Maybe some fun but healthy cookbooks, or a pinterest account would inspire her.

  • I would go to the Nurse at your School & ask to speak to her in private. Tell her your concerns for your friend. Tell the School Nurse you think she is sick because of her coloring. No one has to know it was you. Maybe the Nurse will call her in to check her & then call her Mother. You are a good friend.
