Our recent survey shows that 81% of the parents complained their children carry a bag weighing more than 5kg to school every day! Imagine how damaging it is towards children's spines!
Fret not, follow the 6 useful tips here to save your children from BIG BAD BAG!
Never let a child carry more than 15 percent of his or her body weight. That means, if your child weighs 30kg, the bag must not be heavier than 4.5kg.
Arrange the heaviest items closest to the child's back. Books and stationeries can be arranged after the heaviest items to prevent them from sliding.
Always recommend your child to wear both shoulder straps. Wearing only one strap can cause a child to lean to one side, curving the spine and causing uneven shoulders in long run.
Select a bag that equips with well-padded shoulder straps. This can help to relieve the pressure on shoulders and neck, which in turn avoid pain and tingling.
Adjust the shoulder straps so the pack fits comfortably and closely to your child's back. Try to keep the bag at the position of not more than 4 inches below the child's waistline.
