The Importance of Sun Protection and your Child

With summer well and truly upon us it is vital you teach your child the importance of sun protection. Even when the clouds are out, UVA and UVB rays are still causing damage to your little ones delicate skin.

So slip on a shirt, slop on some sunscreen and slap on a hat! Make it fun by showing your child this videos featuring ‘Sid the Seagull’. If the video does not delight, I am sure that the jingle will certainly strike a chord! Growing up in Australia I was very familiar with the ‘slip, slop, slap’ catch cry and can vividly remember singing along to ‘Sid’, as he danced across the TV screen. It is certainly an effective way to broadcast the dangers of sun exposure, I still remember it some 20 years later!
