Blog: Pushchair pain

Catherine Sleep | 4 December 2003

Paediatric obesity is on the rise, and the spotlight has fallen on pushchairs sold for use by older children. There was a time when pushchairs (strollers/buggies) were only used for babies and toddlers, up to 36 months, say, but these days models cater for children as heavy as 50 pounds, well up to the age of four and beyond. This may be handy for parents whose priority is to get from A to B as quickly as possible, but it means children are spending even more time on their butts, as the interesting article hyperlinked below points out.

Of course, in my day pushchairs were so darned uncomfortable you couldn’t wait to get out and walk.
