    What should a 11 year old boy eat to grow taller?
    I am an 11 year old boy and I'm 140cm tall. There are other people, around my age, who are heaps taller than me. I feel that I am making little differences with my height. I just want to know what food I need to eat and how much. Also, what type of drink do I have to take to help me grow?

    Height is pre-determined by your genes (unless you're malnourished). If you're eating a balanced diet, there's not much you can do.

    However, I used to be a scoutmaster. I noticed that between the ages of 12 and 14, most boys grow tremendously. It's not uncommon to see three inches of growth a year during that period. In a few cases, I saw more.

    Hang in there. You'll grow.
