There is no set number of calories any human being should have. There are recommendations for daily caloric intake but nothing concrete. A typical 16 year old girl will burn about 1500 to 2500 calories/day depending on her level of activity, metabolism, etc. If the girl at question is overweight, change the current diet and encourage exercise or sports.
