My niece has reached precocious puberty at 9 age. I heard early puberty increases the risk of stunted height and breast cancer. How to counter this possibility? And what food-related measures should be taken? Can girls eat papaya during puberty?

She can eat whatever she wants to and don’t worry about her stunted height or cancer which is not going to happen because of early puberty and make her lead a normal comfortable life
