What is my BMI?

BMI is a measure that adults can use to see if they are a healthy weight for their height.

What is a healthy BMI?

For most adults, an ideal BMI is in the 18.5-24.9 range.

If your BMI is 25 or more, you weigh more than is ideal for your height:

  • 25-29.9 is overweight
  • 30-39.9 is obese
  • 40 or more is very obese

If your BMI is less than 18.5, you weigh less than is ideal for your height.

If you know your height and weight you can calculate your BMI using this online calculator

Taking Vitamins

Vitamins are essential nutrients that your body needs in small amounts so that it can work properly. Even though you can get lots of vitamins from a healthy balanced diet, you still might not get everything you need at certain times in your life – such as when you’re pregnant, a new mum or a small child. So UK health departments recommend that at these times you should take a supplement containing specific vitamins to make sure you get everything you need.
