Human height is a metric trait that is a characteristic that is measured in quantity and controlled by genes and environmental factors. Yesterday I met one of my besties after a long time. We both are mothers of naughty kids who are in their “tweens”. After exchanging pleasantries and catching up with each other’s life she expressed her concern about her kid’s growth a few times in midst of our conversation. Both of them are having good height but their kid was quite tiny even at the age of 10 and that is what bothers them. So in this article, I will be discussing tips to increase child’s height.

When it comes to height various factors play a major role but in addition to genetics, eating the right kind of nutritious food is very important that helps in child’s growth. While men grow till the age of twenty-five whereas women attain their full height by age of eighteen or nineteen.

But proper diet and exercise helps a bit to enhance height and we really should try out that. So here are few Tips to increase child’s height:
