  • 2. • For more than a century, the Body Mass Index (BMI) has been a useful tool for detecting potential weight problems and the associated health risks. The BMI is simply a ratio of height to weight, and is easily calculated. What is important, however, is to understand what is considered a healthy range and what is considered unhealthy.
  • 3. • The BMI for children is calculated the same way as that for adults, but the numbers are compared to norms for children of the same age and gender.
  • 4. • 1) Weigh the child and multiply this number by 703. • 2) Measure the child's height in inches, and square this number (multiply it by itself). • 3) Divide the first number by the second number. This will produce the child's BMI
  • 5. • Overweight • Depending on age and height, boys are considered overweight if their BMI is more than 30. For girls, a BMI of more than 32 is considered overweight. • Underweight • Depending on age and height, boys are considered underweight if their BMI is less than 14. For girls, a BMI of less than 13 is considered underweight.
