BMI check tool for children

Parents concerned about their child’s weight can use a new BMI checker available on the NHS Choices website.

According to their statistics, three in ten UK children are overweight or obese, leaving them at risk of developing health conditions such as diabetes.

The new BMI checking tool is suitable for children aged two years and above – unlike BMI checkers on other internet sites.
