Playing Safely in the Sun

Now that the summer weather here it’s important that parents ensure their children are playing safe in the bright sun. Below is a great post from Stretch-n-Grow, Winston/Salem which aims to help.

Wearing the Right Clothes

It doesn’t matter if your child is wearing expensive brand name clothing, what matters is that their clothing is appropriate for their type of exercise. This could mean:
  • Providing your children with a long-sleeved shirt to protect their skin from the sun, pr
  • Providing them with shorts instead of jogging pants to help their legs breathe as they run.
Whatever exercise or sport your child plays, be sure their clothing is appropriate.

Hydration

It can be easy for children to have so much fun running around that they completely forget to drink water or a sports drink and stay hydrated. However, the summer weather is the most important time for this thought to be on your child’s mind. Make a delicious snack and speak about these items:
  • How hot is it outside?
  • What clothing do you wear?
  • Which type of exercise are you undertaking?
  • Watch your sweat level
If your child can consider these items each time they are playing outside then it can help them to monitor their hydration levels and ensure they are drinking enough water throughout the day.

The Best Children’s Fitness Classes

When it comes to children’s fitness and exercise, education is the first step and can go a long way to helping them make smart health and fitness choices when you are not around. In addition to helping your child stay active with their children's fitness classes, Stretch-n-Grow, Winston/Salem also educate children on how to stay healthy.
