Backpacks that are too heavy or don't fit right can put a lot of pressure on your child's growing spine.
Dr. Roman of Roman Family Chiropractic says depending on your child's age, their backpacks should weigh only between 10-15% of your child's total weight.
Make sure when you choose a backpack that the straps are at least two inches thick, and weight is evenly distributed.
