Calculate the children’s BMI yourself
Basics: The BMI is a measure that relates body weight to height. It is used worldwide as a guide for your ideal weight. According to the World Health Organization (WHO), an adult’s BMI should be between 18.5 – 24.9. For the calculation, the body weight (in kg) is divided by the height (in m) squared. Put simply: weight / size 2 .
To calculate the Children’s BMI, however, the formula must be adjusted. Because unlike adults, children are still growing and body fat mass can develop very differently in the different growth phases. So there are children who suddenly shoot up and look very thin at first, and in others the “baby fat” grows gradually. The difference in development of girls and boys must also be taken more into account when calculating the special children’s BMI.
