Hi there ~

I would not do anything to boost your daughter's height. It is a natural process and all the numbers are just that. Please do not focus on those numbers too much but be aware that the greater the nutrition and activity that your daughter can get, the taller the height she will achieve. I hope this helps.

Take care and have a lovely day !
