Hi, As per her age and height her ideal weight should be 58.5 kg. A calculated healthy well balanced diet according to her height, weight, BMI, lifestyle pattern, health status, digestibility will help her to gain weight and meet her body requirements ( energy and nutritional requirements).

Hi, It also depends on her height as well. 40 might not be underweight. If she's absolutely alright, doesn't t feel tired, doesn't fall sick very often, you need not worry. Just let her eat a very good well balanced diet and be active . Nothing to worry. 40 is just a number if everything is fine, it might just be the ideal weight for her, also depends on heredity. Trying weight gain in unnecessarily, can lead to just fat well ght gadbadit n, which inturn can lead to other problems
Next Steps
