Girls do not increase much in height after they have started menstrual cycle. You can give calcium, iron and vitamin D supplements. Cycling, skipping, stretching exercise can help

No specific diet or supplement or medicine or exercise will increase the height beyond that determined by the genetic code she has inherited!! Contrary to common belief,menses have nothing to do with height gain,which WILL continue till 18 and sometimes 21 years. Just ensure a healthy balanced diet and plenty of physical activity. BTW,do you know Indira Gandhi was just 5 feet tall!! Height has NOTHING to do with success and happiness in life,so relax,no point fretting over something you have ABSOLUTELY no control over!!
