UK-WHO growth charts
The new growth charts are based on the World Health Organisation (WHO) Child Growth Standards, which describe the optimal growth for healthy, breastfed children. The new charts combine UK90 and WHO data and provide clear instructions on how to measure, plot and interpret the chart.
- an adult height predictor
- a Body Mass Index converter
- guidance on gestational age correction.
We welcome feedback about the UK growth charts. Any feedback submitted will be considered when the charts are reviewed. Unfortunately we are not able to respond individually to comments about the charts. To request the feedback form, please email email@example.com
The charts have been developed as a project undertaken within the RCPCH Science and Research Department, Growth Charts Expert Working Group, led by Professor Charlotte Wright from the University of Glasgow and funded by the Department of Health.
