Fitness Tip: Give your toddler a head start on fitness

April 27, 2010

Toddler tennies may not be the best for the developing feet of your little ones

Do you dream of having your kids be football stars or prima ballerinas?  Help your toddlers get a head start on standing, walking, running, and the thousands of other activities that use their feet.  The adorable baby shoes we all love may help your baby stand without falling, but in the long run they cause weaknesses throughout the many intricate muscles of their feet.  The best shoes for your child as they are developing are simple leather wraps or anything soft, without a flat sole.
