Have you spoken to her doctor about this? I would probably start there. He/she may be able to recommend a nutritionist if it's necessary.

What kind of food is around the house? What are some things your daughter loves to eat? Lots of times you can "tweak" recipes to make them healthier.

Does your daughter play any sports? Does she like to play outside? What are some of her favorite activities? Could you do those activities with her to help encourage her to be active?

All kids need a healthy diet and lots of physical activity- no matter their size. So that seems to be where you will want to start.
