Calculate your BMI using this calculator if you are between 2 and 19 years old.
Body Mass Index (BMI) is a number calculated from a person's height, weight and age. It is used to find out possible weight problems in children. The use of BMI can help to calculate if a child is underweight, overweight or obese.The BMI calculator is not a diagnostic tool rather a screening tool that may identify possible weight problems that may lead to certain health risks. Based on the child's BMI readings a doctor may want to perform further health assessments including diet, family history and activity level.
