I. Tips to grow taller for you!
Your child's maximum height is determined by genetics. Kids generally
end up between the average of their parents' heights and the height of
the parent of the same sex. He may also follow your growth pattern, so
if you had your growth spurt later in your teen years, he may also shoot
up around the same time. There are steps you can take to ensure that
your child reaches his maximum height.
Growing Like a Weed
Can You Help Kids Grow Taller?
According to the MAGIC Foundation for Children's Growth, normal
growth from age 4 to puberty is at least 2 inches per year. Girls usually
have a growth spurt of 2 1/2 to 4 1/2 inches a year starting around the
age of 10, or the start of puberty. Boys experience their growth spurt
around the age of 12 and grow 3 to 5 inches a year.

Method 1 : To Become Taller
1.Consume a balanced diet. A person will look a lot shorter when
having a plump body. Not only that, being fit by eating right will
make you taller and feel better!
o Eat plenty of lean protein. Lean protein, such as white
poultry meat, fish, soy, and dairy, helps promote muscle
growth and healthy bones. Simple carbohydrates such as
pizza, cakes, sweets, and soda, are the stuff to stay away

o Eat plenty of calcium. Calcium, found in leafy green
vegetables such as spinach and kale, and in dairy (yogurt and
milk), helps promote healthy bones.
o Get enough zinc. Studies, although they have been
inconclusive so far, point to a possible link between zinc
deficiencies and stunted growth in boys. Good sources of
zinc include oysters, wheat germ, pumpkin and squash
seeds, lamb, peanuts, and crab.
o Get enough vitamin D. Vitamin D promotes bone and muscle
growth in children, and a deficiency has been shown to
stunt growth and cause weight gain in teenage girls.
Vitamin D can be found in fish, alfalfa, or mushrooms

Exercise throughout the teen years and in puberty to improve
your height modestly. Do jumping exercises frequently, such as
skipping, dancing and even hanging . Be active. Get out and about
and work your muscles for at least 30 minutes each day.
o Join a gym. Joining a gym will help give you access to a lot of
great exercising and muscle-building machines. It will also
keep you motivated to work out (you'll feel silly if you're not
exercising in the gym).
o Join a sports team. People who join sports teams can use
their natural competitiveness to burn extra calories and
hopefully get their bodies taller. The great thing about team

sports is that half the time, you don't even realize that
o If nothing else, walk around. If you can't find the time to do
anything else, get up and walk around. Walk to the grocery
store. Walk to the library. Walk to school.
Get adequate sleep each night. Sleeping is the time when your
body grows, so having plenty of sleep is equivalent to giving your
body more time for growth. Get between 9 and 11 hours of sleep
per night if you're a preteen or still younger than 20.

o The human growth hormone (HGH) is produced naturally in
our bodies, especially during deep or slow wave sleep.
Getting good, sound sleep will encourage the production of
HGH, which is created in the pituitary gland.
Understand that a majority of your height will be predetermined
by genetics. Scientists reckon that 60% to 80% of your height is
determined by genes. Unfortunately, either you have the tall
gene or you don't. That's not to say that you can't grow tall if you
have parents who are on the shorter side; it just means that

having shorter parents means you're more likely to be on the
5 Try not to stunt your growth. There might not be a lot you can
do to increase your height, but you can take several steps to make
sure your natural height isn't shortened by environmental
influences. Drugs and alcohol are both thought to contribute to
stunted growth if they're ingested while you're young, and
malnutrition can keep you from reaching your full height, as well.
o Does caffeine really stunt your growth? Scientific study
shows that, no, caffeine does not stunt growth. Caffeine
Performance review phrases comments/ free download examples Page 8
does, however, have a higher chance of keeping you from
sleeping soundly and regularly. Kids and adolescents needs
about 9-10 hours of sleep, and caffeine may hurt your ability
to get that much sleep.
o Does smoking really stunt your growth? The effects of
smoking and second-hand smoke on body mass index (BMI)
are inconclusive. According to Columbia University's Internet
Health Resource, "Although the studies that have been done
are largely inconclusive, the available research suggests that
children who smoke or who are exposed to second-hand
smoke are shorter than those who do not smoke or are
children of non-smokers."
o Do steroids really stunt your growth? Absolutely. Anabolic
steroids inhibit bone growth in young children and teens,
along with lowering sperm count, decreasing breast size,
elevating blood pressure and putting you at higher risk of
heart attack. Children and teens who suffer from asthma
and use inhalers that dispense small doses of the steroid
budesonide are, on average, half an inch shorter than those
not treated with steroids.
6. Expect to be in your twenties when you stop growing. A lot of
young kids look at themselves and ask, "Have I finished growing
yet?" If you're under 18, the answer is probably "No!" If you
haven't stopped puberty yet, then you haven't stopped
growing. Try to be thankful that you have a little time to grow
taller instead of worrying about how tall you will be.
