Brief Answer:
Swimming is good

Detailed Answer:
Thanks for asking on HealthcareMagic.

The final height of an individual is genetically determined and is slightly more than the average of the height of both parents for male child. However, swimming involves overall body exercise and stimulates growth in height. You can admit your child into swimming and that should help.

Let me know if I could help further.
