Hi,
Great to hear that she is recovering from such a disease. Now it's time to build her immunity back and also help her to gain weight with right nutrition.
She should have lots of fresh fruits and vegetables to increase vitamins, minerals and antioxidants content in body. Dark leafy veggies like spinach to be given for iron content. Whole grain cereal like, atta, oats, millets etc.
She should practice different pranayams in the morning for strengthening the weak lungs. Avoid outdoor pollution.

Hi..... Only calories won’t add to your body weight,include the right amount of proteins to your diet. Remember if you want to put on weight and look fit, you need to build muscles not flab. Eat - Eggs, lean meat, fish, pulses, sprouts, and dairy products that rich sources of proteins. Fish such as tuna and mackerel are rich in oil and are one of the best ways to increase weight.....
