Hi Pauline, Yes you are correct when this is the BMI for an adult (it is over 25). However for kids, growth charts are used to calculate BMI, so it's not so cut and dry with the numbers. This is a good point you make, and I'll have to be clearer with verbally illustrating this next time. Thanks for pointing it out!

Just for the record- BMI of 22 does not make one overweight- in regard to the case of the 11 y.o. basketball player.
