Be Sun Safe

5 Ways To Keep
The Kids In Your Life Sunsafe

 

  • Keep babies up to 6 months out of the sun. Their skin is too sensitive for either sun or sunscreen. They need to be in the shade.
  • Cover their head and face with a wide-brimmed hat and long sleeves. 
  • Limit the time they are in the sun, especially between 10am and 4pm.
  • Make sure older kids apply sunscreen.
  • Give everyone’s skin a visual once over.

Children who get sunburned are at more risk of getting melanoma when they are older
