Milk is the main source of calcium for the development of the human skeleton. Drinking milk daily helps accelerate bone growth, increasing height.
Calcium accounts for 99% of the bone and tooth structure, so a lack of it will limit the height. Especially, growing children should consume more calcium-rich seafood such as crabs, shrimps, and fish.
Eggs are a protein-rich food that can synthesise nutrients very well. Eating more eggs will help the height development a lot.
Cereals contain fibre, vitamins, iron, magnesium, and selenium, and are rich in calcium. This makes them important to height development in children.
Fresh vegetables and fruits
For height increase, fresh vegetables and fruits are indispensable. They contain a lot of fibre, vitamins, potassium and folate. In particular, vitamin A helps the development of bones and tissues.
Some foods rich in vitamin A are papaya, carrot, broccoli, sweet potato, mango, watermelon and apricot.
Foods rich in vitamin C, such as oranges and tangerines, also support children’s body growth.
