For example for your child, can open access weight charts based on age for boys aged 2-5 years can access this link. The target of weight growth based on age ranges between 15th-85th percentiles, shown in the graph in yellow with numbers (15th and 85th). With an ideal range of child growth in the 50th percentile average with a green line with 50th numbers.
