WEIGHT-FOR-AGE CALCULATOR

To plot your daughter’s line, download the chart here. You can also check the line entered by the health practitioner in your Road to Health booklet during your clinic visits.

  • If her line crosses a z-score line and the shift is away from the median, this may indicate a problem or risk of a problem.
  • If her line stays close to the median, occasionally crossing above or below it, this is fine.
  • If she is severely wasted (very underweight) and her line is well below the median, she should be referred for urgent specialised care. If she is very overweight (obese) and her line is well above the median, you should seek advice from a nutritionist.

Calculations are based on the WHO child growth standards
