BMI is typically used as a means of estimating body mass, and can be calculated quickly and without expensive equipment. However, BMI cannot take into factors such as frame size and muscularity. It cannot distinguish what proportions of a human body's weight are muscle, fat, bone and cartilage, or water weight.

BMI for children aged 2 to 20 years is calculated just as it is for adults, but it is classified differently. Instead of set thresholds for underweight and overweight, it is their BMI percentile that is important. For children, a BMI that is less than the 5th percentile is considered underweight and above the 95th percentile is overweight. Children with a BMI between the 85th and 95th percentile are considered to be at risk of becoming overweight.

Underweight BMI-for-age < 5th percentile
 
Normal BMI-for-age 5th percentile to < 85th percentile
At risk of overweight BMI-for-age 85th percentile
to < 95th percentile
 
Overweight BMI-for-age > 95th percentile
Note: If your child is in the 75 percentile that means that compared to children of the same gender and age, 75% have a lower BMI.
