Her weight and height are above the 95th percentile for her age. She needs daily 5oz of meat or equivalent, and 3 cups of milk or dairy products for her protein daily requirement. Protein intake is needed for the body to grow and hair. Is there a genetic tendency in the family of hair growing later? If not, then suggest having her checked by her MD, if you are really concerned.
