Specializes in Pediatrics
Varies: Here's a link to a Body Mass Index calculator. Input your child's height and weight and you can see where the child fall's on the growth scale. Children come in all shapes and sizes - health risks concerns are for those too high or too low on the scale. http://www.webmd.com/parenting/raising-fit-kids/weight/bmi/bmi-calculator
