How to grow taller when being a vegetarian?

I’ve been a vegetarian since 2006 and I think that it may be effecting how much I grow (in terms of height). I’m 16 now and I started when I was 14. I am about 4’11” and I was 4’9” when I was 13. So if it is effecting it, what can I eat to help me grow. I’m a picky vegetarian, I don’t like tofu. Also, I take b-12 every morning. Are there any vitamins that could help?

Answer #1

There are vegetables that contain calcium, too… spinach, beet greens, etc.

Answer #2

oh and you can get protein from nuts (if you’re not allergic) or peanut butter 2:)

Answer #3

calcium tablets and protein shakes . . . the shakes are nasty, but you need your protein!

Answer #4

also try soy milk ( I recommend silk) for calcium and fake meat (morning star,boca, etc.) they have a lot of protein
