healthy feet – happy children

Walking barefoot is a healthy exercise for your child under the right conditions. However, as soon as you take them outside, being barefoot is not necessarily ideal as their feet may well be exposed to dangers e.g. infections through accidental cut or may end up with sprains or fractions as they walk or run around.

When kids start walking, the best is to let them walk barefoot as much as possible, but preferably in-house.

This will help them develop balance, coordination and correct posture, it also supports sensory development which is important for building confidence in walking. Once they start adventuring outside though, protecting their delicate feet with a properly fitted, healthy pair of shoes is just as important and strongly recommended.
