Hi.. First find out the reason behind her sudden weight loss. You can increase her calorie intake by just adding a tea spoon of Ghee or butter into her rice and deal also try to give her more proteins in the form of eggs, fish, paneer or soy chunks. Take care.          Regards Dr. Swapnaja Kirunge Dietician /Nutritionist
