I don't agree with using sunscreen. It adds toxins to your body, and especially for small children, the load can be quite heavy, and our bodies need to have sun on our skins to produce the best type of D3 and K2. Between sitting inside 24-70 staring at games and the boob tube, and slathering on sunscreen so you're "protected," there's an epidemic of D3 deficiency growing. The key is not to stay our for 20 million years at a time, but get outside and enjoy the sun au naturale.
