What helps a child grow taller?
Here are the top 10 healthy foods that will help your kids grow taller and stronger:
- Eggs: Proteins are nutrients that play the biggest role in increasing your kids' height, so make sure that they eat an egg every day.
Chances are you'll be around the same height as your parents. If one parent is tall and one short, then you're likely to end up somewhere in between. But you could be taller or shorter, too. That's because your height is determined by your genes — the complicated code of instructions that you inherit from your parents.
- A child whose parents are both 6' is likely to be the tallest kid in kindergarten. If both parents are unusually short, their children probably will be short too. But even kids who have average-height or tall parents may inexplicably stop growing -- a condition known as idiopathic short stature (ISS).

- Exercise throughout the teen years and in puberty.
- Get adequate sleep each night.
- Understand that a majority of your height will be predetermined by genetics.
- Try not to stunt your growth.
- Expect to be in your twenties when you stop growing.

If a mother and father are the same height, their daughters will be roughly the same height, but their sons will be taller. This is because in order for the mother to be the same height as her husband, she must have more of the other 'tall genes' than him, and these get passed onto her sons.
- No baby has ever died from crying. (But as previous stats show, babies can be hurt by overwhelmed caretakers.) On the other hand, letting a young infant cry for extended periods is not particularly beneficial to that infant, as far as we know. And infants cannot harm themselves in any way by crying.
- The period of PURPLE Crying® is a term used by some experts and parents to describe colic or persistent crying. Coined by Ronald Barr, an expert on infant crying, it's designed to reassure parents that colic is simply a phase that many babies go through.
- You can't spoil a baby. Contrary to popular myth, it's impossible for parents to hold or respond to a baby too much, child development experts say. Infants need constant attention to give them the foundation to grow emotionally, physically and intellectually.
