Body Mass Index Children US

BMI children USThis module calculates Body Mass Index for children from age 2 to age 18 and classifies the result according to the guidelines given by the U.S. Department of Health & Human Services. It also has an optional evaluation of height in relation to age.

Instructions:
1. Enter values for gender, height and weight.
2. The result is interpreted within four categories: Underweight (<5th percentile), Healthy weight (5th-85th percentile), Overweight (85th-95th percentile) and Obese (>95th percentile).
3. To evaluate height in relation to age click the "Evaluate height button"
4. Please note, that BMI is only a very rough predictor for overweight in individuals.

Background

For adults, the body mass index limits for overweight and obesity are straight forward (overweight = BMI > 25 and obesity = BMI > 30). For children this is much more complicated as the limits vary a lot depending on age. This calculator uses the US guidelines that are based on fixed percentiles from a large reference population. 

A BMI of 20 indicates obesity in a 6 year old girl, whereas it would represent healthy weight for a 13 year old girl. However, as growth of children varies, the final evaluation should always be based on a several factors including physical growth, muscularity and subcutaneous fat deposits.

The calculator also includes the possibility to evaluate height in relation to age. If the child/youth scores in the high percentile range on height (above average) this could indicate that physical development is ahead of chronological age. As higher BMI is expected with increasing age (above age 6), this information can assist in a qualified evaluation of BMI.

As a former anorexic, it makes me so sad to see all of these comments from young girls who are healthy or even underweight about wanting to be thinner. I was hospitalized when I was about to go into cardiac arrest and I almost died from my eating disorder and I was only about 2 lbs underweight. If you eat a healthy balanced diet and exercise in moderation, your bmi is completely irrelevant. I am happy to say that I am 5'5, 125 pounds, and I feel more beautiful than ever. How you feel about yourself should not depend on some bullshit number.

I am 5'3 and I weight 121lb., and I feel like I am huge! My step sister Rylie is 100lb. and she always complains about being "fat" she is 14 and is 5'4 almost 5'5. I normally wear a size 1 in jeans and usually a size small in shirts but now going school clothes shopping for 8th grade makes me nervous because I want to lose a couple pounds. I GUESS I AM THE TYPICAL GIRL WORRYING ABOUT WHAT I LOOK LIKE BUT I JUST KNOW IF IM OVERWIGHT OR NOT, SOMEONE PLEASE TELL ME.

"I'm 13 and I'm 5' 3 and I weigh 134 lbs. Am I fat
?"
We are almost exactly the same. I an 13 years 3 months and 3 days old, and I'm 5' 2.5 inches, and weigh 134 lbs.
Honestly , I have to ask you a question, do you take a prescription drug called adderall? If so do you stop taking it during the summer or anytime for 1 month or more at a time?
If so this is completely normal for you. I just so happen to have a doctors appointment the day that school ended which was June 4th Or 5th of 2014. I weigh 109 pound that day. I
Stopped taking my adderall and I gained a lot of weight.
It's normal. Don't worry.

See told you mom I'm not fat at all,and to read all of these comments from younger or same age as me , I feel like I'm the skinny one.. Hope you guys/girls don't hate yourself just because of this, just eat healthier (no starving though!)

Okay It says healthy weight but they are wrong :) I am 17 years old and my pants size is 0 !! It means I am SEVERELY UNDERWEIGHT ( ANOREXIC ). :D

[Edited]

According to your BMI, your weight is healthy. This chart isn't something some random person decided to make up. This scale is used widely by doctors. It's not wrong. Who cares if your pants size is zero? Mine is double zero. It doesn't matter. Anorexic people, no matter how thin they get, always think they're fat. Take it from someone who knows. The fact that you're saying you're underweight proves you're not anorexic. So does the smiley face after the sentence. Anorexia is not something to be happy about. It's not a diet or a trend. It's a disease. I'm sick of people glamorizing the very thing I suffer from.

Thank you. Some people feel proud of an eating disorder, when in reality it is a sad and scary thing.

Lol I'm 12 and at the 45th percentile - exactly in the middle of the healthy weight range! I wouldn't call myself pretty but I like my body :) And all you wacked-up anorexics, underweight is NOT GOOD. Underweight is ugly and you could have heart failure and die, so I wouldn't call it good.

People like you, the ones calling a certain body type ugly, are why people like me develop eating disorders. We do not care what you think or what others think, in our minds we are only beautiful when we are as thin, and we try to become as thin as we can be no matter what others think. So you're 12 and in the 45th percentile. I am 17 and in the 5th percentile, and we are both beautiful. I am not ugly because I am underweight. My boyfriend of 2 years does not think I am ugly because I am underweight. He thinks I am beautiful. So why should I listen to a 12 year old with no real world experience who thinks I am ugly?

My 6 year old son is already 4'9" and only weighs 47lbs, he is at 10.2 bmi, and super thin, however he has always had a healthy diet, and appetite, has TONS of energy and is very active. I am in the Army and stationed in another state (he is with his father and step mother who are amazing and I know take great care of him) yet his pediatrician has said absolutely nothing about him being underweight or doing any testing. Should I be concerned? From his latest exam it is obvious she is a blithering idiot (I saw the paperwork and the woman can't even do simple math, like his age in years and months, she was off by two months...) I don't know what to do besides ask them to take him to another doctor.Has anyone had an issue like this before?

No you actually feel like crap every single day, you just don't realise what it's like to feel healthy and fit. Use the calculators on this site and elsewhere and calculate your calorie intake versus your output. Then do something about it.

Ren~ I have been a vegetarian (for a year) and all you need to do is make sure you are getting enough protein and all of your vitamins. When you don't eat meat many people lack protein that helps you grow and stay healthy. Drink a protein shake, take some vitamins, and eat some peanut butter, you'll be fine. :D

Okay, I am seeing a lot of these comments are by 11-16 year olds. Let me just say that you guys are still young, your body is doing some weird crap as you grow older. Even a bmi calculator made for children is not that accurate. Especially for you girls, guys do not care about how much you weigh as you might think. If you still want to lose weight, just do simple things like walking a mile a day. You can still eat the same type of food, just eat a little less of it. You do not have to do anything drastic, if you want to change, then DO IT. If you are reading this more for health reasons, in my opinion you should not care about it too much till after your body stops growing.
(Im 15 and a half, male, 6 ft and 145 lbs if anyone cared to compare)

Your daughter's bmi is around 10.2, which is worrying, but you can help by ensuring that she is getting a balanced diet, and the daily calories she needs. you say she eats a lot, but she needs to eat right too. if her weight remains this low, consult a doctor and they may supply extra vitamins and supplements. remember, she is young, and weight my fluctuate and can depend on her metabolism, but be very careful to ensure your child receives all the food groups she needs and keep an eye on her, as a bmi this low can be dangerous.

Useful guiding tool, esp if you have family members who are worried about their weight, can be used to reassure as if you see someone everyday it is difficult to be objective. BUT the use of the term 'normal weight' is misleading and unhelpful, and the fact that it is only an average is not repeated enough, I know if my teenage daughter looked at this and found she was in the overweight section, that in itself would be enough to send her into a spiral of depression and self harm. A little knowledge really can be a dangerous thing. Anyone worried about their weight should seek expert advice and not rely on internet self diagnosis tools, everyone is different

When I was 10 yrs old, I was 4'9'' and I weighed 54lbs. I wasn't even a percentile I was so underweight. How on earth did I live through that? (I was not anorexic, I lived in an abusive home) luckily enough, I did live, ad my weight doubled by the time I was 15. I have a picture of me from when I was 11 and I was scrawny, but I was still healthier then than I was 10. All of my bones stuck out. don't abuse your kids.

The calculator is wrong because It's average. If you have muscle or heavy bones. It can show you overweight or obese. Try to measure your body fat.

I have been trying to only eat about 1,200 calories a day, but I'm still not losing weight! I really want to lose 5 pounds. I have very low body fat, but I still am very self conscious. Should I try to loose weight or not?

It is important to understand that the calculator considers an ideal (average) variant of weight of a child. If the body mass have +500g every month or has not changes at all, in this case, of course, it is desirable to consult with the personal doctor, because the Nation's Health is most important. nation-health.blogspot.com/

this calculator says that anything under 15.4 is underweight, and that anything over 22.5 is overweight.
However, the other one says that anything lower than 18 is underweight, and anything over 25 is overweight. talk about inaccurate.

#25 Jake borene 2011-04-23 07:38
Hello is a bmi of in the 21 range too high. under 25 is good for adults but it's different for kids. that's why a lot of people bother that their child is at a healthy weight but they don't know that it's different for kids and its even different for kids who are at different ages. The reason why it's different for kids is because of the amount of body fat that changes by age and the difference of body fat between boys and girls. The calculator involves percentiles. Percentiles tell you which place your bmi is compared to the people who are at your age and gender. 1st to 4th percentile is the underweight category. 5th to 84th is healthy weight. 85th to 94th is overweight. 95th to 100th is obese. There may be children who are thin who are still told that they're overweight or obese if they're very young children. There are CDC percentile charts that tell you what bmi is in which category for your age. The charts are like graphs and there is a chart for boys and girls. They are used for kids who are at least two years of age but less than 20 years old. If you take a look at the charts then you'll understand how they are graphed. The definitions have also been changed. It's still called underweight for children and adults but it's called healthy weight as Normal for kids, at risk of becoming overweight as overweight for kids, and overweight as obese for kids. The reason why they say overweight for children at risk of becoming overweight is because you would be at risk of becoming an overweight adult because overweight children are likely to become overweight adults. And they say overweight for children as obese because obese children have a high chance of becoming at least overweight that's high enough to be told that he or she will become at least overweight

I think this is so very sad to see young kids saying they hate themselfs by doing their body weight with this tool, where is someone to chat them through it to try to help, they shoudln't hate themself because of this u change ur whole life easp from 10 to 20 reading this has made me not want to go onto these sites to read children hating themselfs their bodies, I don't see how they can possible be rated on some tool on a computer every child is different and their weight changes why is there no one to talk to them to help, don't leave them hurting like this i think this is just awful and won't go on this again ! Kids DON'T HATE YOURSELF OVER WEIGHT IT CAN CHANGE U CAN CHANGE IT , AND IT JUST MAY ON ITS OWN Im 40 and i have gone up and down since a child my weight is normal and I had a weight problem as a child both low and high , so don't worry !!!! love yourself the best u can thats the best way to deal with any problem Take care CJ

It seems to me you can determine it just looking at the child. If a child or anyone else has weight problems it can be easily noniced. I also know that there are some formulae which calculates the normal weight. I've read about it in a book which I found at rapidshare SE rapidpedia.com . It was about healthy food. Just eat healthy food and You'll never bother about your weight.
