Body Mass Index
The BMI button is colored according to the category in which the BMI falls into. When you touch it, the BMI interactive table is displayed with the BMI large smoked glass slider showing you immediately where your child stands: Severely Underweight, Underweight, Normal, Overweight and Obese. >>> Should you have any concern about the BMI category of your child, you should always consult your pediatrician.
Growth Charts Right into Your iPhone or iPod Touch
From 2 to 13 years, any child can have its data entered and see their growth percentiles. Doctors use "Centers for Disease Control" CDC growth charts to provide percentiles; Child BMI calculates the percentiles from the data CDC uses to print the doctor's charts!
Exclusive Feature: Visual Growth Percentile
The doctor's growth charts are somewhat complex looking and you need to know how to lookup information on them to find your child's percentile. Child BMI displays a visual translucent bar on boy/girl outlines to show you these percentiles in a straightforward way. You will know right away if most children same age are taller or shorter, heavier or lighter. The Body Mass Index is the rating used by the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), by the World Health Organization (WHO) and by doctors. They are provided in Child BMI as an indicator only. >>> You should not take this information as a recommendation nor as a data point to take any action on your child's diet without consulting your pediatrician first.
