UK-WHO growth charts - 2-18 years

This chart is mainly intended to assess the growth of school age children and young people in primary or secondary care. It includes guidance on the onset and progression of puberty, a BMI centile lookup, an adult height predictor and a mid parental height comparator.

These and all our growth charts are based on WHO Child Growth Standards, which describe the optimal growth for healthy, breastfed children.

The growth of most children less than four years of age should be plotted on the more detailed UK-WHO 0-4 year growth charts. However, children who have been plotted on the NICM chart up to age two years can transfer straight onto the 2-18 chart.
