3 products to protect kids from the sun’s rays

If you’ve booked a sunny vacation to get away from the wintery weather, make sure the little ones are covered with these must-haves. Don’t let a nasty sunburn ruin your time away.

1. Julbo Bubble sunglasses

It’s a good idea to protect your toddler’s eyes from the sun’s harsh rays with shades — if you can get them to keep them on, that is. Don’t scrimp and buy cheap supermarket sunglasses. The kids’ glasses made by sports eyewear specialists offer 100 percent protection against UVA, B and C rays, and are designed specifically for a child’s face so they stay on. Plus, they look great. $40, www.julbousa.com



3. Coolibar toddler’s swim hat

This sunhat provides no less than three sunhat essentials: it offers
protection of UP50+, is saltwater and chlorine-resistant so they can
wear it in the water and, crucially, has a chin-strap so they can’t pull
it off the minute you put it on their head. The darker the fabric, the
more sun-proof it is. $20, www.coolibar.com

2. Pop-up UV pool

Don’t let your toddler overheat in the baby pool — let the water heat up
in this pop-up pool, then attach the cover to provide shade and
protection from UV rays. $42.50, www.thebabycatalogue.com
