Food to eat to grow taller?

Food will not make you grow taller. But, if it runs in your family- on both your mom's and dad's side, then you will be tall, no matter how much food you eat.

Follow up from another wiki answerer,

it does not have to be genetic. i have a brother (two acturally) that have two very very VERY short parents. Yet, both of them have went above to the average height for a man (way over). Its because they both sleep a lot, and eat a lot of vegies and fruit, do athletic activities.
