How to I get my 9yr old daughter to eat healty food?

We live in Spain now and the meditearean diet is supposed to be one of the healthiest places to eat on the planet unless of course you are my daughter! She wont eat salad, most veg or fruit unless they are mangos (very expensive) or raspberries (hard to get here)! Unfortunately she is now getting into the obsese category and we are becoming very concerned about it for her own sake. Other kids can be so cruel and she doesnt seem to have any energy anymore either. Any suggestions please??

Try to get a routine where every other day you"ll both go on a walk. at least 20 mins. Try to make it fun like by talking about things she likes to do, so she wont focus on the walk. Buy her some nice gear for the walk, you never know she might like it.
