In brief: Balanced nutrition

The best aid for growth is an active lifestyle, proper rest and a healthy diet.
Don't expect anyone to grow taller than their genetic potential.No special supplements add to potential growth.If you want to know how much longer a person has to grow, an x-ray of the wrist ; hand can be analysed for bone maturity. With this a doc can give you an estimate.
