Prioritising Children's Foot Health All Year Round


While Children's Day on June 1st is a special occasion to celebrate our little ones, caring for their well-being, especially their foot health, doesn't end with the festivities. Ensuring the healthy development of children’s feet is crucial year-round and plays a vital role in their overall growth and ability to engage actively in life's adventures.

Understanding Children's Foot Health: Rapid growth and active lifestyles make children's foot care incredibly important. Issues like poorly fitting shoes or unnoticed infections can lead to complications later. Here's how parents can maintain vigilant foot care for their children:

  1. Choose Appropriate Footwear:

  • Select shoes that fit well and provide adequate support and room for growth. Shoes worn by another child may not be suitable as they can mould to the original wearer’s foot shape, potentially causing discomfort or alignment issues in others.

  1. Maintain Proper Hygiene:

  • Encourage children to wash and thoroughly dry their feet daily, especially between the toes, to prevent conditions such as athlete's foot.

  1. Watch for Common Foot Problems:

  • Look out for signs like flat feet, toe walking, or frequent tripping, which may necessitate a foot health practitioner consultation.

  1. Promote Physical Activity:

  • Physical activities strengthen foot muscles and improve foot structure. Ensure children have time for play that involves running, jumping, and other foot-strengthening exercises.

  1. Schedule Regular Foot Health Check-ups:

  • Regular visits to a foot health practitioner are crucial, particularly for children with conditions like diabetes that affect foot health, ensuring any problems are identified and managed early.






Caring for children's feet is not just a year-round commitment for Children's Day. Healthy feet enable children to explore, learn, and play effectively. Let’s ensure their little steps today lead to a healthy tomorrow.
