Q:

My child is 4.6 years old..he has an average height but it's in lower side. Myself and my parents are short so I am worried if my child may also become short..can you please suggest if I can take any effort to increase his height right from now.



Hi.. if the parents are short firstly you should track the growth on a growth chart to ensure that the child is growing to his full potential... on your end you can ensure good nutrition and calcium vitamin d supplements which can help
