Everything you need to know about sun hats

Why is a sun hat so important for children?

That a sun hat belongs on a baby’s head is practically an unwritten law – either as protection against a hot little head or against the sun. A sun hat is at least as important for (big) children.

Unlike babies, they are more likely to be in the sun and should therefore have sun protection on their head. Like the skin, the head must also be protected, for the sun can cause damage through the thin scalp.

In the worst case, it can lead to sunstroke or heatstroke. The sun hat for children should therefore also have (certified) UV protection and also cover the neck. Because sunburn can also develop over the neck – cool caps are therefore quite unsuitable.

With us, nothing works without a summer hat!

With us, the summer hat is simply a part of it. The children must not go out without a hat, they know that too. The risk of sunstroke is too high for me. Even when we swim, the kids are wearing hats and UV clothes. Unfortunately, we are mostly alone in this.

When is sun hat mandatory for toddlers?

Sun protection is required from a UV index of three. You can easily check this in your weather app on your mobile phone. This also applies to skin protection …

A sun hat for children: until when is it necessary?

Strictly speaking, even we parents should protect ourselves from the sun. But be honest: very few of us wear hats, except maybe on the mountains and by the ocean. The following applies here: The child must wear a sun hat for as long as possible – if possible into adulthood. Then it will do one thing better than we do now.

Summer means: cool drinks and watermelons, strawberries and ice cream. In the video, we show you how to conjure up fruit skewers in no time at all:
