Bike helmets need to be purchased every 3 years?

As we were choosing a new bike helmet for my daughter, a customer told us styrofoam breaks down so helmets need to be purchased every three years to be sure the helmet is safe. And a helmet which is dropped on the ground is compromised also. So how many helmets are actually safe on our childrens heads, really?! I have three children and no bike shop has ever mentioned this. Is it true?
