Your children’s feet
You worry about your children’s teeth and eyes and other parts of their bodies , You teach your children washing, brushing and grooming, but what do you do about their feet which are still developing and have to carry the body through a lifetime?
Many adult foot problems have their origins in childhood.
During the first year of a child’s life their feet grow rapidly, reaching almost half their adult size. By 12, a child’s foot is about 90 percent of its adult length. This is why podiatrists consider the early years to be the most important in the development of feet .
Neglecting foot health can also lead to problems in other parts of the body , such as legs and back.
