Dips - does she do dips? If so, then you could do dips like hummus which are healthy and caloric (olive oil!) or guacamole. Perhaps she could help you mash the avocado?

My two kids are vastly different in what they will eat, despite us having treated them the same. Both are fruit devotees and will not turn down fruit. Ever.
