Nutrition tips for significant height growth
Eating foods that include a variety of nutrients
Building a balanced and proper diet significantly contributes to promoting the height growth optimally, naturally and safely. In order to ensure good health, good immune system and effective height growth, the daily diets should be diversified and include four groups of nutrients:
Carbohydrates: Carbohydrates participate in the formation of cells and tissues and support the development of brain and nervous system. Carbohydrates can provide energy for daily activities and account for over 60% of the total energy intake. Foods containing high levels of carbohydrates are sweet potatoes, taros, rice, bread, noodles, corn, etc.
Fat: Fat participates in the formation of adipose tissues and acts as a reservoir of energy for the body. Furthermore, it also helps enhance the absorption of fat-soluble vitamins such as vitamin A, vitamin D, vitamin E and vitamin K, and is good for the development of the brain and nervous system. Foods containing healthy fats are fishes, nuts, cooking oils, seeds, avocados, etc.
Protein: This nutrient participates in the formation of cells, bones, teeth and in the creation of digestive enzymes, other enzymes, hormones as well as antibodies to help fight diseases. Protein is abundant in meat, fishes, eggs, milk, shrimps, crabs, beans, soybeans, tofu, etc.
Vitamins and minerals: There are over 20 vitamins and minerals in the human body. Vitamins and minerals help the organs of the bodywork constantly, smoothly and effectively and ensure the toughness and firmness of the human body. Essential vitamins and minerals include vitamin A, vitamin B, vitamin C, vitamin D, vitamin E, vitamin K, calcium, phosphorus, iron, zinc, iodine, etc. Vitamins and minerals are often found in many kinds of plants such as vegetables and fresh fruits.
The presence of four groups of nutrients in daily diets helps provide us with enough nutrients and energy to ensure that our daily activities and physical development occur most effectively.
Pay attention to food quality
The freshness and quality of foods affect greatly the nutrient content. If dishes are processed from fresh foods with no preservatives and no residues of pesticides, the nutritional value will be preserved and the effects of health care and height increase will be promoted.
On the contrary, if we use foods that are no longer fresh and have poor quality, they not only provide insufficient nutrients to us but also affect our health and height growth negatively.
Therefore, any one of us must be proactive in equipping ourselves with basic knowledge about nutrition as well as how to recognize fresh, safe and quality foods, to promote the nutritional values in health care and height growth.
The meal structure is consistent with each stage
At each stage of development, children need to be supplemented with different amounts of nutrients. Normally, the more children grow, the more nutrients they need. At each stage, children's meal structure must be adjusted appropriately to properly and sufficiently supplement essential nutrients to them for their physical development and intellectual development. The fetus, the first 3 years of life and puberty are golden stages for children's height growth. At these stages, parents should enhance calcium-rich foods and mineral-rich foods in children's diets while still sufficiently providing other nutrients to them to both ensure the health and promote the height growth. In order to do this well, parents should consult a doctor or a nutritionist about specific nutrient content needed at each stage of development to help children stay healthy and grow taller.
Additionally, parents should not force children to eat too much. Instead, parents should split the meals and feed children moderately at each meal in order to stimulate their taste and help them absorb nutrients better. In addition to three main meals, children should eat 2 - 3 snacks per day in order to provide them with enough nutrients for their height growth.
