Body Mass Index (BMI) Calculator for Children and Teens
Does your child have a healthy weight? Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) recommend the use of BMI-for-age (age- and gender-specific BMI) to screen for overweight in childhood.

Based on the CDC BMI-for-age growth charts (for children from 2 to 20 years), this tool calculates your child's BMI percentile among children of the same sex and age.
