How is Healthy Height different from other products?
Healthy Height was tested in a prospective, randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled clinical trial, the gold standard for clinical studies. Our delicious shake mix is rich in high-quality whey protein and contains vitamins and minerals needed for growth. Healthy Height has also been supplemented with L-arginine, an amino acid shown to be low in children with growth issues. Additionally, Healthy Height is soy-free, gluten-free, rBST free, and contains NO corn syrup, preservatives, human growth hormones, artificial flavors, or colors.
Who may benefit from this product?
While Healthy Height’s formula was studied in children of short stature, our shake mix can also help children who are experiencing a wide range of medical conditions, including low appetite, low BMI, Cystic Fibrosis, ADHD/ADD, picky eating, feeding therapy, Autism Spectrum Disorder, and more.
My child is over 9 years old. Should they drink Healthy Height?
While our study looked at growth outcomes in children ages 3-9, some older children can still benefit when their growth plates are still open and active - before the later stages of puberty. We can't speak specifically to how much growth they could see, as we are still studying the effects of Healthy Height on growth in children 9+. If your child has progressed into puberty and is nearing the end of that stage of development, Healthy Height would likely not be able to effectively influence growth to increase their height.
Since Healthy Height is just nutritious food, not medication, there is no harm or risk in older child drinking our delicious shakes for extra nutrition and for supporting their growth.
My child is under 3 years old. Should they drink Healthy Height?
We recommend speaking with your pediatrician about appropriate serving size for children under 3 years of age. We want to prevent very young children from over-consuming vitamins and minerals when you add Healthy Height to their regular diet. Since our shake mix is just food, not medication, your pediatrician should be able to make a recommendation.
How often should my child take Healthy Height?

When can my child stop taking Healthy Height?
Our clinical study’s full results were measured at 12 months. Since Healthy Height is nutritious food, it can continue to be consumed beyond 1 year to supplement your child’s diet and to continue to support their growth.
Are there any risks in taking Healthy Height?
No. Healthy Height is nutritious food (not medication), that contains nutritional ingredients that have been shown in a clinical study to help children grow.
Does Healthy Height help with weight gain?
In our clinical study the children saw both height and weight increases. The weight gain was non-obesogenic, meaning it did not caused an increase in BMI and was proportional to height.
We would not recommend Healthy Height to children who are overweight or obese to prevent any additional unwanted weight gain.
Why does Healthy Height work?
Growing children need all kinds of nutrients in order to grow (i.e. protein, vitamins, minerals). When a child doesn’t consume an optimal diet, his/her growth will not be optimal. Healthy Height contains ingredients that are known (from scientific literature) to stimulate growth in children.
Adding Healthy Height to compliment a child’s diet helps them to get the nutrients their body needs for proper growth. The child growth pattern is influenced by genetics (80%) and environmental factors, predominantly nutrition (20%). While nutrition has a less of an influence on growth than genetics, adequate nutrition will ensure that a healthy child will reach his/her full growth potential.
How do I serve Healthy Height?
1 serving is 2 scoops from our bag or 1 single serve packet into 4 oz of water or milk. Healthy Height is very versatile and can be added to milkshakes, fruit smoothies, yogurt, or other yummy recipes. We have many of these creative recipes on our BLOG.
Can taller children benefit from Healthy Height?
Children of all heights can benefit from the added nutrition of Healthy Height! While our clinical study did not include children in higher percentiles, our pediatricians believe children of all heights can benefit from adding Healthy Height to their diet. The addition of high quality protein, vitamins, and minerals are essential for supporting healthy growth.
My child can’t have dairy. Why don’t you have a non-dairy option?
At this time we do not have a non-dairy option available. Healthy Height's formula is based on a published clinical study. The researchers looked at other sources of protein and were unable to get the same results using non-dairy sources. We understand the need for dairy-free options. Our clinical team will continue trying to find a solution for those not able to consume dairy, as our company goal is to help all children reach their full potential.
