Here is an online BMI calculator for children

http://pediatrics.about.com/cs/usefultools/l/bl_bmi_calc.htm

What is your child's BMI, where does it fall on the percentile range and is it a healthy weight?  If your child at risk for becoming overweight, overweight, or underweight, have any healthcare professionals ever been concerned about their weight?

 A 2 year and 1 months old (male) child
who is 32 pounds
and is 3 feet tall has
a body mass index of 17.4,

which is at the 73th percentile,

and would indicate that your child is at a healthy weight. Keep in mind that it is still possible for a child to have an eating disorder even if they are at a healthy weight though
