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:

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.
