How to protect your child’s skin in the sun

At this time of the year, it’s great to get the kids outside and enjoying the sunshine. For parents, it’s also the time of year when we need to think about sun protection for children and which sunscreen is best to use. Protecting your child's skin in the sun can be hard. But keeping them out of the sun can be even harder!
