    Children come in all sizes. Some too tall, others too short, and many in between. Although greatly influenced by certain genetic and environmental factors, it’s a parent’s duty to monitor the average height and weight for children so that any possible growth retardation can be identified at the onset.

    Growth charts are a medical aid for doctors to evaluate your child’s height and weight. It's also a helpful guide when you want to keep a track of your child’s developmental progress. A growth chart is marked by percentile rankings, which categorise the average height and weight for toddlers according to their gender and age. With the help of these percentile rankings, one can tell if their child falls above or below average or if they are the perfect size for their tiny little bodies.
