Here are a few tips to keep your children safe and warm during the cold winter months:
- Dress children in thin layers.
- Limit time outdoors when temperatures are low.
- Make sure helmets and proper safety gear are worn for all activities.
- The American Academy of Pediatrics recommends that children under age 7 not snowboard and that children under age 6 not ride on snowmobiles.
- Children still need sunscreen in the winter time. Apply it to all exposed areas.
