For stunting, you can use the following code in stata:

codebook hc70
tab hc70 if hc70>9990,m
tab hc70 if hc70>9990, m nolabel
gen HAZ=hc70
replace HAZ=. if HAZ>=9996
histogram HAZ
gen stunted=.
replace stunted=0 if HAZ~=.
replace stunted=1 if HAZ<-200

svy: tab stunted

But, for childhood BMI, you can find your answer in the following link: 41&S=Google
