Healthy Kids for Professionals

Children and carers

It's not always easy to tell if a child is a healthy weight for their age and height. Children and teenagers need to grow, but they are healthiest if they stay within a certain weight range as they grow. This is called a healthy weight for their age.

You can find out if a child or teenager is a healthy weight for their age using the healthy weight calculator (opens new window).

The healthy weight calculator is part of the new Healthy Kids for Professionals website which is designed to help health professionals manage children above a healthy weight, and their families.
