Growth charts

Growth is an important indicator of a child's health. Our charts allow health professionals to plot and measure your child's height and weight from birth to young adulthood.
For boys and girls from 0 to 4 years, as well as babies who need close monitoring - and including the charts used in the Parent Child Health Record for new parents
For boys and girls from 2 to 18 years. Other charts available for children who need close monitoring (up to 20 years) and children with Down Syndrome
You can freely download low-resolution charts, and order print and digital copies from external suppliers. If you have questions, contact us on


Anyone who measures a child, plots or interprets charts should be suitably trained, or be supervised by someone qualified to do so.
