You can make your kids grow into their potential height by giving them balanced diet. Food that contains the complete essential set of nutrients needed for tissue development and cell formation.

Height is a phenotopic character. It can be determined by genes and environment. The environment mostly diet. While genes accounts for about 60-70% of physical appearance, the environment accounts for about 30-40%.

By extension, this means that if your kids have inherited the genes for tallness from you and it is dominant triat, they grow taller. Then again, if they do not get the required nourishment, it can affect their height and prevent them from reaching their potential height. If you kid doesn't have the genes for tallness, there is barely any other method.

Genetics is thought to account for 60-80% of a child's height. Hence, if both parents possess the gene for tallness or even if only one parent is tall, as long as it's a dominant trait, then there's a huge chance that your child will inherit the gene and exhibit tallness. This factor is something we cannot control.

On the other hand, what we can control is the remaining 20-40% that accounts for a child's height--nutritional factors. Every child, beginning infancy, should receive the nutrients necessary for their growth and development. It is best for children to be breastfed, as this impacts not only the cognitive but also the physical development of a child, especially in their first year. Moreover, parents should accustom their child to healthy and balanced diet. What they eat should be primarily composed of fresh fruits and vegetables, whole grains, and proteins. They should limit their intake of food that contains huge amount of sugar and trans fat.

According to some researches, proper sleep is also a key factor since the body releases human growth hormone while the body is resting. It is recommended for a child age 6-13 to have at least 9-11 hours of sleep. Other than this, they may also be encouraged to try yoga and other forms of stretching exercise that can elongate/straighten the spine and stretch the whole body.

All these combined can help a child reach his or her full height potential.
