Lighten Up!

Aug 18, 2009

It's back-to-school time and probably just as important as

the 'what am I going to make for lunch every day' issue is: What backpack to

get? My son is just three-and-a-half so his is pretty light – a change of

backpack is becoming a major health hazard: Research shows that kids are now

having back pain at almost the same rates as adults. Yikes! Talk about old

before your time.

Making sure your kid's backpack doesn't age him is pretty

easy with a few pointers from the pediatric spine experts at New York

Presbyterian Morgan Stanley Children's Hospital. First, it shouldn't weight

more than 15% of his weight. (For a 50-pound child that would be 7 pounds.)

Second, he should wear it with both straps on the shoulders to make sure the

weight is spread evenly. Some packs also have a waist strap that helps keep it

centered on the back. Third, pack the heaviest items (big books) first. And

fourth, check the pack from time to time to see how heavy it is–especially if

your kid tends to be a packrat. Now the experts actually recommend lookinginside

the pack to weed out the junk since kids

tend to carry around stuff they don't need. But not sure you'd be able to get

away with that without being called a snoop.
