I know some about Ayurveda, but more about Chinese Medicine (I am a practioner)... I'd say avoid giving her cold drinks and foods (they are hard on wee ones digestion!)... go for warm foods and drinks...avoid bananas, juice, dairy, eggs, wheat, and too many sweets.
Mild spices such as anise, licorice, cinnamin, ginger, nutmeg,cardamom, cumin, small bit of clove, can be very helpful...
you could make dairy-free rice pudding w/ these spices, or indian pudding (made from cornmeal).
other good food choices- oatmeal w/ cinnamin, soaked prunes, steamed vegis, stirfried vegis w/ ginger, ginger tea, mochi, hot whole grain cereal, fennel tea, applesauce (warm) w/ spices, curried lentils, black bean soup w/ cumin & cilantro..
go easy on the soy, as well.
Theree's a great seasoning called Chinese 5 Spice Powder- it has some great spices that are good for digestion. As well as the Indian spice mix- Garam Masala.
