 Red Footed Tortoise won’t eat

Hi everyone,
I’m new here and hoping someone can help me. We got a 6-month old red footed tortoise for my daughter about a month ago. Set up a large tortoise tank in her room, have all the proper lighting, shelter, dishes, etc. We mist every day and monitor temp and humidity. We soak her each day or every other day when she eats. But lately, (for the past 3-4 days) she won’t eat. Only 1 little bite in 3 days. We offer her a wide variety of food--tomatoes, bananas, greens, blueberries, strawberries, and the grassy commercial tortoise food. Up till 3 days ago, she was eating great! Now all she wants to do is sleep. Her poop has been a little runny, but doesn’t seem too worrisome. Can anyone offer advice?
