5 Great Tips to Increase your Child’s Height

Height is one of the essential factors which determine the overall personality of an individual. Every child wants to reach a standard height. Increasing height is easier for the kids compared to adults. Therefore, it is an ideal time for your child to gain height.

Here are some useful and effective ways given below that can help your child increase his/her height:

  1. Proper Sleep

Proper sleep and rest are essential for a growing body. As growing children and teenagers, your child should have at least 8 to 11 hours of proper sleep every night in order to reach their maximum height.

  1. Regular Exercise and Sports

One of the best tips for your child to grow height naturally is by being physically fit and active. Regular exercise and sports can enhance your child’s height. Indulging in sports like swimming, aerobics, tennis, cricket, football, basketball or stretching exercises are a good way to keep their body growing. Hanging exercises can also be useful to grow your child’s height through exercise.


  1. Yoga

Yoga is a great way to increase your child’s height naturally. Certain yoga poses facilitate the release of growth-inducing hormones in the body. The stretching and balancing exercises involved in yoga will help to strengthen their muscles and improve their body’s posture as well.


  1. Maintaining the Correct Posture

You should encourage your child to maintain a correct posture from childhood. Simple things like sitting straight on a chair, keeping their shoulders straight, chin high, and hips over their feet while walking or standing can actually have favourable effects on their height.


  1. Balanced Diet

A balanced diet is essential for your child’s body to get the proper nutrition. Avoid saturated fats, carbonated drinks and excessive sugar-loaded foods as these can cause a negative impact on their height. You should ensure that your child gets all the vitamins and minerals that their body needs, to grow to their full height. Intake of Vitamin D, zinc, calcium, phosphorus, carbohydrates and vitamins is important for your child’s growth.


The Right Nutrition for your Child’s Height Gain

Physical growth in children happens at a rapid pace. To support this rapid growth, children need nutrients. It is essential that your child’s diet is rich in food groups that have a high amount of the right nutrients so that your child gets all the nutrients that they require for their overall physical growth.

Given below are some important nutrients that must be included in a child’s diet in order to increase their height:


Protein is a necessary ingredient in your child’s food to increase their height. Proteins are the building blocks of our body and thus can help increase your child’s height by building various tissues. It is also important for the growth of the hair, muscles, skin and other internal organs of the body.

Sources of Proteins: Milk and milk products (Paneer, Cheese, Curd, Cream etc.), Egg, Fish, Chicken, Pulses, Sprouts, etc.



Height and calcium are almost synonymous with each other. Calcium is undoubtedly the most important component of your child’s diet in order to increase their height. It is responsible for development of bones and muscles.

Sources of Calcium: Milk, Almonds, Curd, Broccoli, Beans, Leafy Vegetables, Mushroom, Eggs, Fish, etc.



Vitamin D is vital for the development of strong and healthy bones. It is also required by the body for the absorption of calcium. Apart from vitamin D, other vitamins like Vitamin A, Vitamin B1, Vitamin B2 or Riboflavin, Vitamin C or Ascorbic Acid and Vitamin F are also required for normal growth.

Sources of Vitamins: Fish, Green Vegetables, Meat, Egg Yolk, Citrus Fruits, Butter, Milk, Fruits, etc.



Foods containing minerals like Zinc, manganese, iodine, magnesium, calcium, iron, phosphorus, etc. should be a part of your child’s diet, to boost their height.

Sources of Minerals: Abundant in Fresh Fruits and Vegetables, Milk, Meat, Eggs, Yolk, etc.

Top 5 Exercises to Increase your Child’s Height

Parents look for healthy ways to make sure that their kids grow up taller. You should encourage your child to lead an active life and spend more time outdoors rather being glued to the television and computers.             With the right diet, postures and a few exercises, it is possible to aid the growth of your child.

So, find below the top 5 exercises that will help your child increase their height:

  • Stretching Exercises

Stretching is one of the most effective ways to increase your child’s height. Simple exercises that involve stretching are a must. Make them stand against a wall with their back towards it. Tell them to raise their hands in the air and stretch as far as possible. Then ask them to sit in the same position on their toes and stretch the leg muscles. Toe-touching exercises are also great to elongate the spine and improving posture.


  • Hanging Exercises

Hanging exercises are effective in elongating and straightening your child’s spine. Pull-ups and chin-ups are an effective way to promote their growth. This playful exercise can help straighten their spine and elongate their vertebrates.


  • Skipping

Skipping is an active exercise that many kids love and can be used as an exercise to increase your child’s height. As they skip, their body stretches and hence, they grow a few inches every time they skip.


  • Swimming

Swimming is another great workout to make your child grow taller. It also helps them exercise their entire body, giving them strength and health.


  • Jogging

There is no end to the benefits of jogging. To make your child grow taller, encourage them to jog every day. You can accompany them and make it a more enjoyable experience.


Yoga for Your Child’s Growth & Height

A recent study suggests that the parent’s height is an important factor that helps determine a child’s height but attaining a good height is not only about the genes. What they eat, how they live and think are equally important. But, regardless of what they eat and how they live, height growth has never been that easy.


Yoga is a very easy and effective way of healthy living. It relaxes the mind which aids the body in producing the Growth Hormone, which is responsible for the increase in height. It creates suppleness while controlling your breath and stretching your body through its full range of motions, yoga helps in increasing height.

Practicing yoga regularly can help your child grow physically and make their mind calmer. Let’s have a look at some of the postures that can aid your child in increasing their height:

  1. Talasana
  2. Surya Namaskar
  3. Hastottanasana
  4. Trikonasana
  5. Parivrtta Trikonasana
  6. Adhomukha Savasana
  7. Hastapadasana
  8. Sukhasana
  9. Bhujangasana
  10. Dhanurasana

These yoga techniques can be extremely effective in increasing your height in addition to a range of other health benefits that they offer. Remember, like with any other practice, you must learn yoga the right way from a qualified expert and practice these exercises under the supervision of a yoga practitioner only.
