Height of child depends on.;
genetic factor(height of parents and grand parents.)

environmental factors.

I suggest you to give her nutritious diet rich in proteins,minerals and vitamins.
Avoid all kind of fried and junk food.
Encourage her do physical activities like cycling,skippins,stretching exercises.
