Know your BMI

Your body mass index (BMI) tells you how much body fat you have. It is a quick and painless way of screening for potential health problems.

Adults

Healthy BMI

A BMI between 18.5 and 24.9 is healthy for adults.

At risk BMI

If your BMI is 25 or over, you're at risk for diabetes, high blood pressure and more.

Children

For children, having too much or too little body fat can also lead to various diseases and health risks. Ask about your child's BMI percentile at their next doctor's appointment.
