Supplementary notes

The revised International Obesity Task Force (IOTF) BMI reference values are used to classify children as either overweight or obese. The IOTF cut-off points are sex- and age-specific, and designed to coincide with the World Health Organization’s adult BMI cut-off points. The BMI cut-off points that were used in this survey were as follows:

  • thin = equivalent to a BMI of 18.5 or lower in adults (refers to children who have a low BMI for their age, rather then children who are underweight)
  • healthy weight = equivalent to a BMI between 18.5 and 24.9 in adults
  • overweight but not obese = equivalent to a BMI between 25.0 and 29.9 in adults
  • obese = equivalent to a BMI of 30.0 or greater in adults.
