Just that really. My 7year old Dd is noticeBly pale these last few weeks. So much so that people are commenting. She's also being exceptionally irritable and moody, however she does have aspergers so it's hard to tell if behaviour is autism related or health related. I've just stRted her on vitamins but she just doesn't seem right. She never finishes her meal usually leaving half and getting her to drink is difficult. Thoughts? I am off to gp this week with her

Good idea taking her to see the GP. Lots of kids have similar symptoms, nothing specific, but pale, low energy/appetite, etc. A blood test would show any possible deficiencies/problems. Let us know how she got on.
