Active Family Contest Week 2: Sponsored by RB Fitness

July is the kick off to our Active Family Contest. This week is sponsored by Runners and Booties Fitness
Sun safety recommendations for children under the age of one (1) year
Keep babies out of direct sunlight,either in a stroller with a hood or canopy, under an umbrella, or in a heavily shaded spot.
Babies should wear sun hats with a wide brim. Dress infants in loose-fitting, lightweight clothing that covers their legs and arms.
Look for a sunscreen product for babies (under 6 months old as doctor) with an SPF of 30 that also provides broad spectrum protection (protects against UVA and UVB). Always try a small amount of sunscreen on the infant's inner arm before general use. Check for a reaction up to 48 hours later.

Sun safety recommendations for children over the age of one (1) year
Organize outdoor activities outside the peak hours of 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. and if possible, try to keep children entirely out of the sun from noon to 2 p.m.
Educate children and youth about the benefits of wearing protective clothing, sunglasses and sunscreen with a sun protection factor (SPF) of 15 or higher.
Take shelter in shade structures on playgrounds and at sport fields. This can also include creating a sun safe environment by encouraging children to seek shade from trees, awnings, umbrellas or buildings.
