tips to keep your kids safe from the scorching heat


1/7

Wear wide brimmed hats, sunglasses, and fabrics that are thin, light-coloured, and breathable and covers the areas of your body that get the most sun.

It is very important for everyone to have plenty of water during summer season. More so for the kids, as they might sweat out playing in the heat. It flushes out all the toxins from the body and also provides fluidity for the flow of blood.

Light-coloured clothes are considered good in regulating body temperature during summer. Dark clothes tend to absorb heat from the sun, whereas light-coloured clothes reflect heat away from the body, thus keeping the body cool. Choose light-coloured clothes for kids during summer.








4/7

For kids beyond that baby stage, Cokkinides advises parents to plan outdoor activities to avoid peak-sun hours (10 a.m. to 4 p.m.) as much as possible. Sound impossible for your active kids? Make sure you all can get a break from the sun, when needed.



5/7

What better way to cool off in the summer than to go for a swim in the pool or ocean? After a day of play, the cool water will feel so refreshing and cool down the kids who are probably overheated. Water is so relaxing and cooling and kids love to play in the water too.



6/7

It’s important to get your children into the habit of wearing sunscreen when they go into the sun. From an early age, start developing a routine: get them to pay attention to the areas of the body that are most exposed to the sun, like the nose, lips, back of the neck, shoulders, arms, back, knees, and feet.








7/7

Avoid making your child eat a lot of spicy junkies like pizza, pasta and burgers—instead go for fresh fruits like watermelons, muskmelons, chikku and kiwi, as they have antioxidant properties and water content which helps in preventing dehydration.
