diet for a seven years old child

I have a 7 year old daughter who was diagnosed with MSK recently. The doctor said she should take a low calcium and low protein diet. What are your tips for her diet or meals?

I've always been told that it isn't diet that causes us MSKers to make stones it's the way our kidneys are made. Calcium is so important for growing children and women. The only diet change I was told to do was drink as much water as I possibly can :0) x
