**Average girls body mass index charts**

The standard CDC charts of childrens Body Mass index (BMI) are the new recommended method to judge if a girl child is overweight, obese, normal or underweight.

Use the Body Mass Index BMI calculator to calculate BMI = (weight in kilograms) divided by (height in meters)^{2}.

Then, look up the BMI and Age on these charts, to see if the the BMI is higher than the 85^{th} percentile or 95^{th} percentile lines, which the CDC defines as girls Overweight and Obese thresholds.

Any values of body mass index between the 5^{th} and 85^{th} percentiles, are considered to be within the Normal range for a girl child, not overweight or underweight.

Here is a more complete on-line version of the girls body mass index for Age chart:

You can also download the CDC’s own .pdf version of the chart, which has the best printed appearance, from CDC girls BMI chart.pdf. And perhaps you’d like to see a chart of adult Womens BMI, because a woman doesn’t stop changing at age 20.

Surf onward to:

- Return to the Body Mass Index calculator for women,
- Or to the other BMI calculator, which is more gender neutral,
- Or see the Boys BMI chart, (similar to this page),

Lets recap. If you know your height and weight, use a BMI calculator to get your BMI. Then return and look on the charts above, to see if you are above average. I know, you probably wished there was a BMI calculator right here and BMI percentiles too. But I don’t have that build. All I have is the charts.
