My 7 year old daughter will not eat anything but sweets

Exactly what Shawnn said.
YOU are the parent and you have obviously given in to her demands up until now instead of parenting. Don't have any sweets or unhealthy smacks in the house. She won't starve herself but you now need to retrain her about her eating habits.

How is a 7 year old able to dictate her dietary demands?
Are you the parent? Do you have control over what is served in your home?
Take control. Trust me, your kid WILL eat what's in front of her when she gets hungry. Remove all sweets, candies, ice cream, etc from your house. Stock healthy snacks, veggies, fruits, etc. When she throws a fit for sweets, apply appropriate consequences (time out, room restriction, whatever) and let her know that there is plenty of food when she's ready to join you in your meal.
