  • Make her fruit smoothies and add avocado or other good fat veggies or fruits. Maybe use whole milk yogurt instead of low fat or pedia sure.
    www.smoothieweb.com is my favorite site for smoothie recipes

  • Marinewife has some good ideas. My daughter was a dancer and I use to make her smoothies and added protein to them. She had at least one a day for many years.

  • smoothies are great, so are vitamins as well, but you honestly need to work with her mom about her eating habits, take her to a dietician.
