5 Summer Safety Strategies That Every Kid (& Parent) Should Know

Posted: July 01, 2022

Summer brings longer days and lots of free time for your kids (and less for parents).

Unfortunately during the summer break children are also more prone to peer pressure as well as being more vulnerable to fall victims to predators.

According to the World Health Organization (WHO) (1), we are in the midst of an irrefutable global obesity crisis – and it’s hitting children particularly hard. More than 41 million children under the age of five are now classed as overweight or obese, and this can go on to cause a lot of serious health problems later in life.
