Diet plays an important role in healing cracked feet. Deficiency of zinc and omega-3 fatty acids can result in dry skin. Dry skin is more vulnerable to cracking. Eat foods rich in zinc, such as crabs, brown rice, kidney beans, yogurt, and oysters; and Omega-3 essential fatty acids, such as flaxseed, eggs, tuna, and salmon.
