Maximum protection for families on scorching Summer days

The Summer heat is looming here in Australia; you can almost taste the salty air.

We all know getting our kids to stay safe in the sun can be a bit of a battle at times, but what if it didn’t have to be? What if hat wearing became second nature, keeping kids cool throughout the warmer months and amongst their peers too?
