Body Mass Index Calculator for Youth and Adults

Use this tool to track your child's growth, and to calculate your own body mass index (BMI). A high BMI can be an indicator of high body fatness. To determine if a high BMI is a health risk, a healthcare provider would need to perform further assessments. These assessments might include evaluations of diet, physical activity, family history, and other screening tests.

We did a full cooking demo using the Pasta with Beans and Greens recipe for the youth, who were extremely interested in watching and learning about the ingredients and why they are healthy. All the youth who watched the demo tried the food. And, many who were not able to watch also came over for a sample. In addition, The Foodlink Curbside Market parks just one building over from the Boys & Girls Club, so we were able to walk the youth over to the truck after the workshop so that they could see it and use pocket change to get some fruits and vegetables. Any youth who didn’t have pocket change could get a free apple.
