Hi You can give her similac for 12 month plus baby 3 scoops in 150 ml water once daily in place of regular milk. Also give her khichdi with more dal and made in ghee which will increase her protein and add veggies to it. If you eat eggs start with boiled egg's yolk thrice a week But first introduce egg slowly In normal milk add powder of almond.
