Also, make sure she is not anemic because that can cause a loss of appetite and anemia is very common in children if they are not eating well and not on vitamins. A doctor normally does a hematocrit or hemoglobin check. For some docturs, this is routine at 9 months, 18 months, and again at 2. Every doctur is different though and yours may not do it or do it at different times.
