to your habits if needed.

The BMI (IMC in French) is only an indicator among others and can't justify by itself changes to your diet, without first consulting a medical doctor.
For children, BMI interpretation is based on graphs representing percentiles of children at the same age. There are no fixed ranges like for adults as children's corpulence normality varies depending on their age. Consult a medical doctor if you have any doubt about the corpulence of your child.
