Getting sunscreen sun protection for children while they are at school can be a difficult process. Who is going to put it on and when?
According to MarketWatch:
“Coppertone launched today the “Making the Sunscreen Grade” program to equip parents with tools to help their children develop lifelong sun habits, including those that protect them from the sun during the school day, with activities like class trips and field days that typically occur this time of year. …
“School officials and parents recognize the importance of protecting children from the sun, but they may find policies and regulations tricky to navigate if they aren’t well informed about them first,” said Ana M. Duarte, MD, Division Director of Dermatology at Miami Children’s Hospital and consultant to COPPERTONE. “I’m excited to be a part of the ‘Making the Sunscreen Grade’ program. It educates parents about steps they can take to help protect their children during the day and invites them to partner with their schools to make sun protection and sunscreen reapplication a priority.”
The “Making the Sunscreen Grade” program provides tools to help educate parents on the importance of sun protection during the school day and year-round. Starting today, a downloadable sun protection guide is available in English and Spanish at http://www.coppertone.com.”
This is a really exciting step forward to helping make sure children are protected from the sun while at school. Of course, also be sure to dress your child in sun protective clothing (which never needs to be reapplied!). And during the summer, be sure to keep them covered up at the pool or beach with SwimZip UPF 50+ sun protective swimwear.
