Children grow short, but as long as they are within the standard of growth and development, parents do not need to worry too much. Some children are unable to keep up with nutrition. Some children are delayed because of certain diseases. Some children are late because of development, and some children are genetic because of factors. Then, as long as the real cause of the child’s shortness is found, and then the conditioning is improved, the child’s height can be slowly changed to a normal value.
First, the reason why the child grows short

Children’s physical fitness is relatively poor, and their immune ability is low, which leads to slow development. Therefore, the child’s height will grow slowly, a few centimeters shorter than his peers.
- Malnutrition leads to developmental delay
A child’s improper diet or malnutrition can cause a child to develop stunted. Therefore, if you want your child to grow taller, you should also pay attention to your child’s nutritional problems.
- Insufficient sleep leads to short stature
The child’s sleep time and quality of sleep are also related to the child’s height. If the child does not get enough sleep time in a day, or if the quality of sleep is very poor, it will affect the child’s growth and development, resulting in the child’s height is not high.
- Suffering from disease delays growth
Your child has certain diseases that affect the child’s growth and development. Only when the condition is restored, with the conditioning of diet and nutrition, can the child grow up slowly.
