According to the World Health Organization, a BMI (Body Mass Index) between 25 and 29.9 represents a nutritional status of pre-obesity. In 2018, the average BMI of Belgians fell into the pre-obese group. However, the higher the education, the lower the BMI. Indeed, the body mass index seemed to be correlated with the educational level of the population.
In 2018, whilst the average BMI of Belgians with higher education was 24.7, the BMI of Belgians with primary education reached 26.7. This index is helpful to identify people at risk of certain health conditions such as diabetes, cardiovascular diseases, and premature death.
