In brief: No magic foods

Balanced nutrition, proper rest and exercise all help someone reach their potential.
At a listed age of 23, you are not going to grow taller no matter what you do.There is no magic "tall" food at any age and certainly not after your growth centers close.

Exactly. Thanks, Dr. Ferguson. While height is a plus for a man, physical fitness overrides it in terms of looking good and impressing others. Fitness is entirely under your control.

In brief: Mostly genetically

Determined, growing taller by nutritional means doesn't work directly.
Eating well and healthy will help be healthy.
