### Description

The ideal body weight for a child can be estimated from gender and height.

For males 1-18 years of age and height < 5 feet:

ideal body weight in kilograms = (((height in cm) ^2) * 1.65) / 1000

For females 1-18 years of age and height < 5 feet:

ideal body weight in kilograms = (((height in cm) ^2) * 1.65) / 1000

Traub and Johnson Equations

For male 1 to 18 years of age and height < 5 feet

ideal body weight in kilograms =

= (2.05 * (e ^ (0.02 * (height in cm))))

For male 1 to 18 years of age and height >= 5 feet

ideal body weight in kilograms =

= ((height in inches over 5 feet) * 2.27) + 39 =

= (((height in inches) - 60) * 2.27) + 39

For female 1 to 18 years of age and height < 5 feet

ideal body weight in kilograms =

= (2.05 * (e ^ (0.02 * (height in cm))))

For female 1 to 18 years of age and height >= 5 feet

ideal body weight in kilograms =

= ((height in inches over 5 feet) * 2.27) + 42.2 =

= (((height in inches) - 60) * 2.27) + 42.2

Traub and Kichen Equation

For ages 1 to 17 years and height > 74 cm

ideal body mass =

= 2.396 * ((1.0188) ^ (height in cm) =

= 2.396 * (e ^ (0.01863 * (height in cm)))
