In brief: Common question
The best way to assure a kid reaches their tallest height includes proper nutrition (balanced diet), proper rest, exercise and good health.
There is no supplement, stretches,exercises, etc. that makes you taller than your genes let you grow. The expected final height is the average of her parents less 2.5 inches. (+/-)Once girls hit 16-17 their growth centers close & linear growth ends.

Eat healthy and exercise are good things to always do.
There is no way to make her grow faster or taller than what her genetic makeup allows.
