Hi, Height is more dependent on genes. Dietary deficiencies also hinder growth Give her a balanced diet Encourge her to eat protein and calcium rich food Increase her activity levels. Involve her in active play like run n catch, tennis, throw ball, etc Teach her to stretching excercises Let her drink plenty of water Sometimes girls grow up fast during their puberty as well   Regards, Uma Maheshwari PS, Dietitian Happy Living Diet Clinic
