How old is your DD? I know a lot of 2-3 year olds live on pizza, pasta and eggs all the time, so I don't think that would totally be the end of the world for 2 weeks or so...I'd also take a few "essential" spices with me if that would help - maybe rosemary, basil, etc.? Can you do a shopping trip when you get there to pick up a few things?

You don't need a wok to stir-fry - if she has a large shallow pan, it does the job acceptably well. Also, you may want to buy a small steamer insert and take it - something that fits over the top of a saucepan, and you can then make veggies in that.

Some other ideas:
could she make sweet potatoes instead of regular potatoes?
Take the baked potato she makes, and load it with yummies like steamed broccoli, plain yogurt, cheese
Grilled cheese sandwiches
Whole-wheat pitas dipped in hummus, or filled with veggies.
Mix other things into the plain pasta (tomato sauce, veggies & butter) or put on the pizza
Cereal with milk & fruit
Fruit smoothies (does she have a blender?)
Fruit bars (My DS loves the whole-foods ones...)

Oh, and my DS likes mildly spicy things - maybe a tandoori dish would be okay for DD?
