The importance of good foot health
Foot health is important in all walks of life. There is really no understating just how essential healthy feet are when it comes to quality of life. Without happy and healthy feet, we are severely limited in where we can go and the activities that we can do.
When it comes to children, this is even more essential! Children’s feet are constantly growing and changing, so it's vital that their shoes always fit properly.
Without properly fitting shoes’, a child’s foot may not develop properly which can then cause more serious foot problems later on in life.
Tips on measuring children’s feet
Properly measuring children's feet is crucial for ensuring their long-term foot health. If your child is stuck in shoes that are too tight or restrictive, their overall health and growth could suffer in both the long and short term!

Common children's foot problems & how to manage them
Problems with the feet can impact many other areas in the body. For young children who are still developing, foot problems can cause extreme pain and discomfort and can come back to haunt them in later life.
As their bodies are still developing, some children may experience mechanical problems of the foot. These issues can be exasperated and further damaged by wearing wrongly fitting shoes.
