Do you wish to find out if your child is undernourished?

It is important to know for a parent if their child is undernourished. The method to assess this state is called Anthropometry. The nutritional status of a child can be used by using parameters like "Height and Weight" or by using  "Arm/Head Circumference method".Nutritional status results are independent of age.

I did the nutritional assessment of my 2 year old daughter. Weight = 13kg and height = 86cm. The result was "abnormal". If I check ideal height and weight for 2 year old , my child fits in as normal. What does this mean?
