Dear Pricilla,

First of all it is important to find the underlying cause. What is she eating? Is it a balanced diet that fulfill in all the needs at her age? If the answer is yes then you must start searching for a problem. She might have an infection of sorts or a metabolic condition that can be easily overlooked.

My advice to you is to take her to a paediatrician. In the line of supplements, you can give her : PediaSure, Nutrament T for Kids. You can use them as a meal replacement or in between meals.

Best regards
