Her weight for height seems fine. There was a little girl in our daughter's grade one class who was that size, and I have a cousin who was that size when she was six. Our five and a half year old still wears size 4. Kids come in all sizes. Encourage your daughter to eat a variety of fruits and vegetables, and make sure that she is getting other sources of protein and healthy fats .

She doesn't need to eat meat or fish. You only need to make sure that she gets enough calories, healthy fat and protein. It's difficult to say if her weight is a problem without knowing her height.
