height is largely controlled by our genes (parents' height). You may however give a high protein and calcium diet to help in height gain. Similarly encourage the child in games and sports like badminton, lawn tennis, throw ball, stretching on monkey bars etc. Give milk and its products like curd, paneer, cheese, buttermilk etc. You may give these as fruit shakes/ fruit lassi. Cheese or paneer can be cut into small bite sized cubes, so that they can use their fingers to eat these. Alternatively paneer/cheese can be added to their roti/sandwich/dosa/uttapam etc. Increase intake of dals/legumes, eggs (hard boiled cut into small bite sized pieces or omlette etc.) poultry/fish (curry, snacks, cutlets, tikka, in rice or in soup). She should keep doing her required exercises and can take up these sports like lawn tennis/basket ball etc. Do take advice of your doctor too.
