Weight is one of the best criteria for assessing the growth and developmental status of the child. Among Indian children, the weight of full term neonate at birth is approximately 2.5 kg to 3.5 kg.

Increase in height indicates the skeletal growth of the person. Normally, height increases up to 18 years in women and up to 24 years in men.

Human growth hormone (HGH) a key regulatory enzyme is necessary to promote height growth. HGH is secreted by the pituitary gland.

Being tall and in shapely figure definitely makes you feel great and also boost your self confidence. Nature of growth and maturation is largely maintained by a constant interaction of genes, hormones, nutrients and other factors that affect the height of a person. Eating a healthy diet such as fruits, nuts and dairy products that supply essential nutrients such as calcium, zinc, phosphorus help stimulate growth and increase the height.
