Individuals who have a legitimate health problem that inhibits their growth may be prescribed growth hormone by their doctor. This is available as a shot, not a pill, and is only used in extreme circumstances.

Kids concerned with their growth should eat a variety of nutritious foods, get sufficient sleep and participate in physical activity to keep their body in the best shape for growing. To get the most from their height, individuals need to use good posture, as slumping is a sure way to look shorter.
