Is a bmi of 12.9 too much for an 8 year old boy

Report as

BMI is just an indicator, not an obsolete. It's 150 years old, Andre Petterson a running back for the Minnesota Viking football team is 6'1"
And 217 lbs. by the BMI standard he is over weight. He is in great shape, any doctor worth their salt knows the value of the BMI. It's just an average, it doesn't take into account muscle vs fat etc.

BMI goes off of height and weight not by age, but 12.9 is not a lot

It's an average. It's pretty fine. By the way, are you eight? Because my brother is eight, and I would hate to see him on ask.com.
