-0:- BAD FEEDING AND FLAT FEET. Flat-foot in a growing boy is generally a sign of bad feeding. The arch of the foot- is kept up by a strong ligament, not by bone. At the age of fifteen to seventeen the lad is growing rapidly and increasing In weight every day, and consequently the arch of the foot has to carry a heavier load every day. In addition, the lad has just left school and has begun to undertake heavy tasks he may have to lift weights and carry heavy parcels, putting a further strain on the arch of the foot. In healthy boys the ligaments are quite strong enough to bear all the hard work, but if a boy is overworked and underfed, the ligament is not properly supplied with good nourishing blood, and, being weak, it gives way gradu- ally, giving rise to the condition of flat- foot.
