No: The actual factors initiating puberty are complex, but good nutrition & physical activity are not known to speed the process. In some cases, physical training for sports like gymnastics & the lean body required may delay puberty in some. Weight excess may accelerate puberty and lead to decreased final height.

The role model: Live and eat the way you want your children to be. You are their role model. Say no to snacks until they have had their five fruits and veggies for the day. They can't buy junk food unless you buy it. Yes, being a parent is hard but when you have sick kids, your work only becomes harder. So eat well, live well, and get the family involved in a healthier life.
