When a health care provider enters height and weight they will have access to the calculated BMI value, BMI percentile, height percentile, and weight percentile . Determining BMI is an important first step in managing pediatric obesity. This Module provides health care providers with printable growth charts and clinical decision support tools including age appropriate surveys to assess nutrition habits, physical activity habits, family history and change readiness to help parents and children identify risks factors and develop goals.
