Cowboy Ted’s Healthy Tips for Kids: Sun safety
Hi kids, this is Cowboy Ted - of the Cowboy Ted’s Foundation for Kids with the Healthy Tip for Kids. Today’s topic is sun safety. Did you know that when you go out in the sun, there is a risk of getting too much sun exposure and dangerous ultra-violet rays from the sun?
The sun offers us important vitamins for our health, but too much sun can lead to skin problems including skin cancer. The general rule is whenever you are going to be out in the sun for longer than 20 minutes, you should be sure to protect your skin.
Use sunscreen and wear hats and clothes that will cover your skin and protect you from the sun. Make sure to find a shady area too and spend a good amount of the time in the protection of the shade.
So to keep yourself strong and healthy, try and limit your exposure to direct sunlight and remember to protect your skin with clothing, hats and sunscreen.
Don’t forget that healthy kids are no accident. The sun is good for us in small amounts, but too much sun can lead to a painful sunburn and possibly lead to skin cancer. Surgery is the most popular cure for skin cancer and that can be painful too.
Keep yourself strong and healthy – be safe in the sun. For more Healthy Tips for Kids, visit my website at www.cowboyted.com.
