Here are a few tips to keep your children safe and warm during the cold winter months:

  1. Dress children in thin layers.
  2. Limit time outdoors when temperatures are low.
  3. Make sure helmets and proper safety gear are worn for all activities.
  4. The American Academy of Pediatrics recommends that children under age 7 not snowboard and that children under age 6 not ride on snowmobiles.
  5. Children still need sunscreen in the winter time. Apply it to all exposed areas.
