You need to look at her diet and her exercise. As Ariana said, it is not about being on a diet, but rather leading a healthy lifestyle.

Does she do any activities? She may need to be more active. Try taking her to the park and having her join a recreational activity like swimming or dance.

I wouldn't put her on any sort of diet but just slowly try to make snack foods less junk and more regular food and put off junky snacks to later. She only can eat when you have around right? So try to just eat healthier and avoid giving her extremely large portions. Encourage more fruits and vegetables.

Mostly it's based off what you eat and have available and how much activity she gets. So try to get active and she'll follow suit!
