I used to give my daughter pediasure when we were in US(i.e.,for 3yrs.after coming to India,I tried here what we get in powder form.she didn't like it and i stopped.now she is 6yrs old and about 120cms height.I am not sure that it is bcos of pediasure r bcos of heredity as her father and his family members r tall.but u can try it.it may make a change.u can give it with water as it cotains milk products.it doesn't tastes good with milk.

You can also use Amway Protein Powder. These are available in different flavours and really good for the essential body requirement of the growing children.

Wishing you all the best.

Are you or your husband on the shorter side. The characteristics like height, build and even growth patterns are genetic. Some children grow quickly during their childhood and the growth decrease during their teens. While for others, their growth shoots up during their adolescence or teen period. You can try the supplements which others have suggested. Unless the growth deficiency is caused by malnutrition, taking supplements will not override the short height due to genetics or harmonal deficiencies

I think 130cm for a 11 year old is a good height anyway for her age. Looks like she will easily reach atleast 160 cm by 18 years.

I agree with NJ.Some children grows in the early stage and their growth will stop in certain age.Some will grow during teenage.Even I have seen in our family itself.
