From your measurements, her weight and height are normal for her age. Some people do fall asleep eating sugar due to a normal insulin 'surge' to try to bring the sugar levels in the blood down. If you are concerned, suggest getting her checked by her Doctor. In the meantime consume a protein based food when she is eating sugary foods and/or avoid sugary foods. It may help decrease the sleepiness. Thank you for your question.
