Childrenís, aged 2 through 19 years old, has different BMI calculation.

It is normal for children to have different amounts of body fat at different ages, and for girls and boys to have different amounts of body fat. So in children and teens, the healthy range for BMI varies based on age and gender.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC, U.S.) has developed standard growth charts for boys and girls ages 2-20 that show the distribution of BMI values at each age. By the CDCís definition, a child whose BMI falls between the 85th and 94th percentile for age and gender is considered overweight. A child whose BMI is at the 95th percentile or higher for age is considered obese.
