    No, coffee doesn't stunt your growth. Only healthy drinks could help your growth. But coffee contains caffeine.

    No, coffee doesn't stunt a person's growth. How tall you are mostly depends on your genes . Good nutrition is also important to reach your maximum height potential. But coffee does contain caffeine.

    Old wives tale so the kids don't drink up all the coffee at breakfast. Genes determine how tall you will be, so don't wear Levi's.  :)
