Back to school Backpack Savvy

Just a quick message about helping keep your children's backs in good shape.  I'm sure many have heard that kids carry too much in their backpacks.  They are simply too heavy.  But did you know that your child shouldn't carry more weight than their age.  That means if you have a 6 year old, he or she should  only carry at max 6 pounds.  Try to limit the stuff your kids carry to save their backs.  They may never thank you personally but you can feel good that you are helping them be healthier.
I'm not promoting the www.necksolutions.com backpacks or anything because I've never tried them but when I did a search for a picture of kids with backpacks their site popped up & they have some good tips on how to load a backpack so that there is less stress on one's back.
