Background:

The European norms are based on calculating the percentiles at each age, that would correspond to BMI 25 and BMI 30 at age 18. A reference material from several countries is used - also from non-European countries.

Important: The BMI guidelines based on this source are not used to define "underweight" as BMI is a very poor predictor for this in children. Therefore, the term "Normal weight" should be interpreted as "Not overweight".

Hey! I know this is kind of off topic but I was wondering if you knew where I could find a captcha plugin for my comment form?
I'm using the same blog platform as yours and I'm having problems finding one?
Thanks a lot!

You really make it seem so easy with your presentation but I find this matter to be really something
that I think I would never understand. It seems too complex and extremely broad for me.
I am looking forward for your next post, I'll try to get the
hang of it!

Today, I went to the beach front with my children. I found a sea
shell and gave it to my 4 year old daughter and said "You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear." She put the shell to her ear and screamed.
There was a hermit crab inside and it pinched her ear. She never wants to go back!
LoL I know this is entirely off topic but I had to tell someone!

Hi! I have been suffering from AN this past year but I am recovering since july. This week I turn 14 and I have 175cm. I was always "underweight' even at my pre ed weight bc that is how I am. I remember doing a bmi test with dad for fun when I was 11-12 and I had a bmi 16.3. My highest weight was 49.7 kg. Now I eat 3000 calories and I gain very slow. A month ago I had 46kg but now I have 46.8-46.9. Is that normal to eat such a big aount of food? I used to eat about like this, I do not remember well... Any recommandations ?
