Child Height Growth Rate

What is the average height gains children make every year from 0 until 15?1 / 1

Growth rates can vary significantly between children and throughout different stages of development. However, on average, children grow at the following rates:

  • From birth to 1 year: 10 inches (25 cm) in the first year.
  • Ages 1-3: Around 3-4 inches (7.5-10 cm) per year.
  • Ages 4-8: Around 2-2.5 inches (5-6.25 cm) per year.
  • Ages 9-12: This is a period of rapid growth, known as the pre-pubertal growth spurt. Boys and girls can grow around 2-3 inches (5-7.5 cm) per year.
  • Ages 13-15: During puberty, growth rates can vary greatly. Boys typically grow about 3-4 inches (7.5-10 cm) per year, while girls might grow around 2-3 inches (5-7.5 cm) per year. This period is marked by a pubertal growth spurt.

These numbers are rough estimates and can differ between individuals due to factors such as genetics, nutrition, and overall health. Some children may experience growth spurts at different times, while others may grow at a more steady pace throughout their development.
