Backpack weight recommendation for students

By Dr. Dan Van Roon • March 22nd, 2015

The maximum weight students should carry in their backpack is 15% of their body weight. Check your child’s backpack with their average amount of books, and you may be surprised how heavy it is! Or if you are a teacher or school administrator, make a fun event out of it like they did at Ashland schools. Check out some of the pics here from their event https://sites.google.com/a/ashland.k12.ma.us/extended-day-program/edp-blog/weightlifting
