Ask any expert and he will tell you that a child’s height can only be determined by his genetics and daily nutritional intake. Soon after the child passes the first year of his or her life, the height is broken down into mini growth spurts. And, as soon as the child reaches adolescence, he or she again starts growing taller. There are many factors that lead to height increase in a child. Nutrition is one of them. To find out more about this, we have with us today, Dr. Amitabh Pandit, Orthomolecular nutrition expert and author of BJAIN book - Super Foods - Make Your Child a Genius, who will tell us how nutrition is linked to height increase in children. *Images courtesy: © Thinkstock photos/ Getty Images
