This usually depends of genetics. Chances are if your parents or grand parents aren't tall, you probably have a lesser chance of being tall too. But it's not the end! Eat plenty of foods that calcium. This includes cheese, milk, yogurt, and many dairy products. Also, make sure you get Vitamin D too, because it absorbs Calcim, which goes into your bones and helps them grow. The sun also gives Vitamin D, so be sure to spend at least 15 minutes in the sun everyday.

A good posture will also help you grow. Always sit up straight. If you were high heels then try to do this less. Don't sleep on your stomach. Sleep on your side with your knees slightly bent. Always keep your neck straight. keep your feet elevated for good circulation.

Also, stretching is also good for height. Yoga is particularly good. Do at least 20 minutes of yoga 5 times a week and you'll see the difference. Swimmin will also give you long, lean muscles muscles. If your skinnier and fit you look taller. So lose the love handles.

Also, wearing the color black will make you appear taller. That's the best I can come up with!

This isn't true. If you sleep on your stomach you won't be shorter.If you do yoga that won't make you taller. The genetics and vitamin part is the only part that is reasonable. My parents are 5'4 and 5'7. I'm only 13 and already 5'9. So don't worry about it much.
