C H A P T E R 2 32 Figure 2: BMI difference for boys and girls between the van Wieringen study and the Fredriks study. In Figure 3 and 4 the relation weight for height from birth until the age of ten years for girls and boys is shown, as taken from the P3, P50 and P97 values from the studies by van Wieringen and Fredriks. At the P3 there is hardly any difference shown be-‐ tween both studies. The curves at the 97th percentile on the other hand show an obvious deviation by increasing height. The children of the more recent study of Fredriks show a trend in which they have a higher weight for height compared to the data of van Wieringen. The deviation becomes visible at a height of approxi-‐ mately 113 cm in both boys and girls.
