Why is "The girl does not want lunch" incorrect?

Because it is not used in the same way as in English.

you could say "La niña no quiere la comida", however it would be quite ambiguous and would need context to be clear that you are referring to lunch. It could be either meal.

A good way around would be: "La niña no quiere sentarse a comer [la comida]"
