NHS warns parents to protect their children in the sun

on .

It’s all too easy to get carried away when the sun is out and you’re enjoying time with your child. But your child can easily burn if you don’t get it right. So, East Staffordshire Clinical Commissioning Group is warning parents about the dangers of sun burn and what they can do to protect their child during the summer months.

We know that a moderate amount of sun is good for us. It provides essential vitamin D, which we need for good health. It improves our mood and also helps to promote better sleep – a fantastic combination if you have small children to entertain!
