What is the value of knowing a child’s weight-for-height?

The weight-for-height gives an idea of how fat or thin a child is. Thin children have a low weight for their height while fat children have a high weight-for-height. Often the body mass index (weight in kg divided by height in metres) is used to determine fatness or thinness.
