Default Helping a small female grow bigger? (7 pounds at 11 wks?)

I have an 11 week old GSD female, who currently weighs 7.1 lbs. From what I've read, it seems like she should be bigger than that at her age. She eats plenty and is in good shape proportionally, and the vet has pronounced her healthy, she was just the runt of a rather large litter (10 pups). I know that being the runt, or smaller than average doesn't necessarily indicate how big she will be as an adult, but I was wondering if there was anything I could add to her diet that would ensure that she grows up healthy, strong and to her full potential weight?

This is my first time raising a German Shepherd pup, and I want to make sure I'm getting her everything she needs!
