BMI calculator shows if you’re a healthy weight

The calculator helps people work whether they or their children are underweight, at a healthy weight, overweight or obese for their height by dividing an adult’s weight in kilograms by their height in metres squared. The result is a person’s Body Mass Index (BMI).

The BMI for a child is worked out slightly differently but this is accounted for within the online calculator.

If people are showing up as an unhealthy weight for their height, such as being obese, it questions how much physical activity a person is doing and provides advice on the recommended levels of exercise for an adult.
