are you her primary caregiver? If not, all you can do is introduce healthier snacking, and more play into her day when she's with you.

If so, then you can start with the entire house having a lifestyle change by introducing healthier foods, lower calorie snacks, etc.

Google "healthy eating", "recommended calorie intake for 7 yo with (whatever) body style", things like that.
