TWIW 19: Barefoot may be better for kids
22, Jul, 2019
This Week In Wellness a new study reveals children who are habitually barefoot between the ages of 6-10 show significantly better motor skills including better balance and jumping skills.
Shout out to Dr Jacey Pryjma from the Australian Children’s Chiropractic centre for bringing this research to my attention.
Published in Frontiers in Pediatrics, this is the first study to assess the relevance of growing up shod vs. barefoot on jumping, balancing and sprinting and shows that children and adolescents who spend most of their time barefoot develop motor skills differently from those who habitually wear shoes.
