- A healthy diet
Start an exercise program that improves posture and flexibility and strengthens muscles. Yoga, swimming, cycling, and running are great starter choices.
Get sleep, an important factor in the growing process because it repairs and replenishes your body. Kids and teenagers who are still growing need eight and a half to 11 hours of sleep a night.
Provide a healthy diet that includes fruits, vegetables, and whole grains. Foods rich in vitamin D, such as dairy products, fish, and fortified cereals, will help build and maintain strong bones.
Add protein to your diet to help in the growth and repair of muscles and tissues. Chicken, fish, eggs, tofu, and legumes are healthy choices.
Avoid food and drinks that are processed or high in fat, such as margarine, soft drinks, coffee, alcohol, and concentrated sugar.
