BMI Tables
Check your Child's Body Mass Index

New recommendations from the American Academy of Pediatrics call for health professionals to calculate and record children's body mass index at yearly well child checks.

While a great idea, if you don't have a BMI calculator in your office and in each room, then calculating a child's body mass index, although not difficult, can be time consuming.

My new Children's BMI Tables make finding a child's BMI easy:

children's bmi tables
children's metric bmi tables
Children's BMI Tables (full screen) Metric BMI Tables (full screen)
Children's BMI Tables (pdf) Metric BMI Tables (pdf)

To use the table, find the appropriate height in the left-hand column labeled Height. Move across to a given Weight. The number at the top of the column is the BMI at that height and weight. Pounds and kilograms have been rounded off.
