Today we spoke with Christine Rodriguez from Lima Pediatrics about summer sun and your kids’ safety.
Lima Pediatrics wants to remind parents that keeping your children well hydrated is extremely important during the summer months. Do not wait until your children say that they are thirsty before offering them fluids; be proactive. Also, avoid soda and energy drinks; water is always the healthy answer and is most cost effective.
Playing in the hot summer sun means lots of fluid losses, so avoid strenuous activity during the peak sun hours of 10am to 6pm. Call Lima Pediatrics with your questions about summer time safety at 419-998-8230 or go to www.limamemorial.org
