Balanced nutrition: At sixteen your growth centers may have some potential for growth & simple measures help the best.Keep active & a healthy diet but don't expect to grow taller than your genetic potential.Girls grow an average of 2.5 inches after their first menses, so if you are at this point, you are done. High healed shoes might be your only friend.
