by   |   Mar 03, 2021

You are probably too accustomed to such sayings as “A sound mind is in a sound body” or “Health is wealth”. Indeed, ever since childhood, our families have repeatedly reminded us of the importance of health in our life. Although one may think that the mere absence of illness or disease amply defines their healthiness, their health in totality is unfortunately not reflected through this mere dimension. In fact, it takes the overall conditions of your body, spirit, and mind that define your functional efficiency to better assess your healthiness.

For children and teenagers, sound health is a prerequisite for proper physical and mental growth. For adults, sound health is vital for happiness and good quality of life. The height and weight chart in kg is an indicative measure of good health for everyone, especially for those in their growing years as it is the benchmark for their overall development.

A height and weight chart in kg measures the two primary parameters that impact your health – weight and height. It sets a benchmark for you to determine whether your weight and height are in proper proportion with each other, thereby reflecting the state of your general health.

A typical height and weight chart in kg and cm is gender-related. Given the distinct differences between females and males in terms of physiological and biological configuration, the muscle mass and composition between the two genders also differ considerably. In order to accurately evaluate the association between the two components, separate height and weight charts for women and men are developed.

Without the use of complicated percentile graphs, the height and weight charts for boys and girls covering from newborn babies to teenagers give you a general idea of whether you are of average height and weight for your age. Nonetheless, there is no perfect height and weight chart in kg as most height and weight charts only reflect a rough average figure and should be used along with other measurements including BMI, waist-to-height ratio, waist-to-hip ratio, and body fat percentage.

All children and teenagers grow and mature in different patterns throughout their growing years. Teenagers should not start dieting because when they mature into young adults, they will simply grow out of their baby fat. If you are worried about your weight and height, consult with your family doctor or a pediatrician as they can use a growth chart to keep track of your progress as you grow.
