In brief: No

There is no exercise, special diet, or other such plan to increase the height of anyone.
A healthy lifestyle with proper exercise, nutrition and sleep habits will assure that a kid reaches their genetic potential. Improper diet/lack of sleep/long term illness/ lack of exercise may all contribute to less than expected final height.
