Dear Flavour
Well your BMI = 18, which is just still within the normal range, but I do think you could eat a little more - increase your low-fat milk and yoghurt intake to ensure that you get sufficient calcium to prevent osteoporosis in later life and start including some fruit/fruit juices in your diet to provide you with additional protective nutrients.
If you could increase your weight to about 46 kg, you would still be wonderfully slender, but have slightly more reserves to fall back on.
