We had some fantastic weather a couple of weekends ago and it looks like it will be back for this Bank Holiday Weekend, so we’re sure you’ll be out enjoying the sunshine.
Even though it’s spring, the sun now is as strong as it is in August so we hope you’re taking the right precautions for your children.
Here’s a reminder of some sun safety tips for your little ones.
• Encourage children to play in the shade, especially between 11 am and 3 pm when the sun is strongest. Keep babies younger than six months out of the sun altogether.
• Loose cotton clothes are best. Try and cover up as much of their skin as you can and encourage them to keep hats on
• Regularly apply high factor sun cream, especially after swimming. Don’t forget shoulders, neck, noses, and tops of feet! Make sure your sunscreen offers good UVA and UVB protection
• Look for sunglasses that meet the BSEN 1836:2005 British Standard and carry the CE mark.
Enjoy the weather safely!
