    Don't give us false hope. I'm 5'1 and eat perfectly balanced and yet am not going to grow. And if you had low protein intake then of course you didn't grow properly as a child.

    But some of us have always eaten right but are still destined to be 5'1...

    Perhaps from a health perspective, but it depends on your moral paradigm.

    We're talking about eating healthily, I thought scientists said junk food is the reason for early puberty and the speeding up of puberty, in western countries... It's confusing. I'm not encouraging unhealthy eating... just, you know.
    I think the poster is saying lack of nutrients leads to stunted growth so eat healthily. As I am aware the junk food issue is slightly different: kids eat fatty food, gain weight, fat is somehow related to the release of certain hormones which bring about puberty? I know very little about this.

    no, vegetarianism is fine, it's just that people don't actually know what they're supposed to be eating, how to get a balanced diet - enough protein from non-meat sources, enough iron etc from non meat sources
