BMI Calculator

Body Mass Index Web Calculator

Body Mass Index, or BMI (wt/ht2), provides a guideline based on weight and height to determine underweight and overweight. As children grow, their body fatness changes over the years. The interpretation of BMI depends on the child’s age. Additionally, girls and boys differ in their body fatness as they mature. Therefore, we plot the BMI-for-age according to sex-specific charts.

You can use the BMI as a tool when you take your child to your own pediatrician/family physician for interpretation.
