What does your Health Visitor advise? Has her weight always been slow to gain or has it been this way since weaning? Normally dairy products can best help boost their weight so if not keen on milk try offering yogurts, fromage frais or cheese.

Pooing 3-4 times a day seems a lot. I know they can poo more when fighting infections (it is one way for their body to shift it) but to be that regular without an infection I would start looking at what she is eating to cause her to be so regular (too much fruit/fibre) and could some of it be replaced with a yogurt/fromage frais/rice pudding to help on the lack of dairy (if not so keen on cheese).
Bizarre as it sounds a lot of getting them to eat is mixing up their foods. If you know they love fruit puree you place a little savoury on the spoon first and then put fruit puree on the front so they taste that first. It sounds disgusting but gets most children to eat more of what you want them to.
