Trinity Teaches Kids the Importance of Sunscreen

Posted: Updated:

Many kids don't want to wear sunscreen because they don't know the harmful, lasting effects of a sunburn. Trinity Health is letting kids know the importance of protecting yourself from those damaging rays.

Every few weeks, representatives from Trinity will be visiting Jack Hoeven Wee Links Golf Course to teach  little golfers how to stay healthy. Today, kids who stopped through were given sunscreen, lip balm, and a lesson on why they need to apply SPF 45 sunscreen while in the sun, even when they're not at the beach.

"It's just as important as wearing your seat belt. It's all preventative, just like immunizations. You just want to be ahead of the curve. You want to give your child that protection in life, and it's something so simple and easy to do. It's worth your time and worth your child's time and for later on in life when they become older," says nurse practicioner Ann Welch.

Welch says using spray sunscreen on your kids might be easier because it's less messy and takes only a few seconds to dry.
