UV protection Sun suits

UV sun protection is so important for our children, and we're all now much more aware of the dangers of the sun. We know that to keep our children safe in the sun we should avoid exposure at the hottest times, use a very high protection suncream and for additional reassurance, a UV swim suit.  Don't forget that your child will need a hat too.  (You can find UV sun hats here.)
