How heavy can a child’s bag be?As parents and guardians, we are understandably concerned about loading a child’s bag with too many books. But what is the maximum weight a child can carry? The general consensus amongst medical professionals is that children shouldn’t carry more than 10-15% of their body weight. Taking an average 9-year-old weighing 35kg, this means that the total weight of the bag should be no more than 3.5kg – 5.25kg. Considering some school bags for children can already weigh up to 2kg when unfilled, it’s very easy to reach the maximum weight without having packed very much.
It’s always best to check if your child is comfortable carrying their school bag. If they are in pain or complain about the weight, make sure you remove items from the bag beforehand.
Samsonite school bags are specially made with lightweight materials so that children can easily carry them around.
