My daughter is 4 years old and weighs only 15 kgs. She does not have any ailments and is very active. But her weight seems below normal and she looks skinny. She eats normally although with a few tantrums and loves regular fruits and vegetables. Is there any way by which her weight can improve?

If she is active she is well, and active children usually do not put on extra weight. Give her food containing proteins like milk products and dhal and pulses.
