Hi Nisha
Welcome to HealthcareMagic.
Your growth will not be stopped just because you attained menarche (menstruation start).Do not worry about it as it is part of normal development.
You should take vitamin rich food mainly leafy vegetables , carrots , beet root , milk .An egg a day would meet all your requirements along with normal diet.

Take care

Congrats on starting of menses as this is the first sign that your development and reproductive organs are functioning normally.As for the age yes it grows with the years passing by and is not dependent on menses.Your health and body will grow naturally and you will feel the difference in growth in these coming 2-3 yrs.Take normal healthy diet and no other special diet is required.
