In brief: Balanced nutrition
While there are no special foods or exercises that make you grow taller, poor nutrition and dietary deficiencies can prevent a child from achieving their potential.
Expected final height is the average of the parents plus 2.5 in for males and less 2.5 in for females. The best way to be tall is have tall parents.

In brief: Normal diet
Height is largely genetic.
A normal diet is about all you can do. Why do you think there are short doctors? If food worked we'd be playing basketball instead of getting up at 2am.
