How do I know if my child is Growing Well?

The Family Healthy Living Program has been designed for families with children who are off the healthy weight and healthy lifestyle trajectory. The below resources can help you determine if your child is growing well.

Is My Child Growing Well? – visit the Dietitian’s of Canada website Questions and Answers designed to help parents determine whether their child is growing well.

Healthy Growth Check – use this body mass index (BMI) calculator to determine whether your child is off the healthy weight trajectory, meaning they have a BMI for age above the 85th percentile.

If you are concerned about your child’s growth or if your child’s BMI for age is above the 97th percentile, talk to your physician or health care provider.

If you have any questions about the Family Healthy Living Program or if your child is off the healthy weight trajectory (BMI for age between the 85th to 97th percentile) and you would like to register for the Family Healthy Living Program, click here.
