 I agree with BreaMarie91! As long as your partners daughter's levels are fine, that is all you should be worrying about! I can assure you, I grew up on sweets, chips and crisps! I only ever had a few low protein biscuits! But I turned out ok….I think?! lol! The suppliment that she has, will have all the nutrients in that she doesn't get from food. That is why my Mum never worried about the rubbish that I ate. I tell you one fruit though, that every child I have ever met has LOVED, and that is watermelon! How about try some of that, maybe some strawberries! Anything colourful she might like?! I hope this helps?!?
