Healthy Tips!

Did you know that just a few serious sunburns can increase your child's risk of skin cancer later in life? Kids don't have to be at the pool, beach or on vacation to get too much sun. Their skin needs protection from the sun's harmful UV rays whenever they're outdoors.

Most of us know how important it is to rub on sunscreen with UVA/UVB protection. But, there are additional ways to protect your child's skin: keep them in the shade when the UV rays are strongest (10 a.m.
to 4 p.m.), cover them up with protective clothing and have them wear a hat.
