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.
