There’s nothing more adorable than a kid wearing shades, but it’s not all about cuteness. Regular use of sunglasses should be an important part of every family’s regular health and wellness routine.
Parents and children should both be wearing sunglasses when ever they go outside. It’s especially important to protect children’s eyes because they are even more susceptible to UV rays. Wearing sunglasses throughout your life can help reduce your risk of age related macular degeneration, cataracts and even cancer around the eye area.
Now you can do your part to increase awareness about the importance of early eye safety routines by participating in the The Huffington Post Kids in Sunglasses photo campaign. The campaign is a team effort with The Vision Council to encourage parents to put sunglasses on their children.
Plus, you get to show off just how cute your kids look in a pair of shades. All you have to do is snap a photo of your kids in their sunglasses and share it on Huffington Post website.
Remember, you are never too young to start wearing sunglasses. Our banded My First Shades are made for children 0-24 months. So, let’s see those cool shades!
