(This procedure/test may also be known as: BMI)
Body Mass Index (BMI) is a calculation that uses your height and weight to estimate how much body fat you have. Too much body fat can lead to illnesses and other health problems. BMI, although not a perfect method for judging someone's weight, is often a good way to check on how a kid is growing.
