For over 10 years, teens have been asking us questions on every topic imaginable. While we are no longer taking new questions, we have a wealth of information we would like to share with teenagers.

I am currently 5'5" and I am 19 years old. I'm practically the same height as my father and my mother is 5'3".
I have eaten pretty healthy my whole life, with the exception that I don't eat fruit. I've eaten vegetables whenever they were available growing up. I drank plenty of milk my entire life.
My question is, is it too late for me to grow, and two, is there anything realistic I can do at my age?
