Look at wt for ht: The average weight of the entire nation and western world has increased dramatically over the last 20 years. What might be more useful would be what a healthy weight would be. Look at the bmi (body mass index) which takes into account height and weight and gives a range of "normal" these also exist for the pediatric population http://apps.Nccd.Cdc.Gov/dnpabmi/.
