Friend of the holidays, the sun can also be a formidable enemy, especially for the little ones. Until how old do you not expose your child? How to protect it best? What benefits does the sun bring? Answers with our quiz.

Question (1/9)

Before the age of 3, there is no question of exposing a baby to the sun.

That's right. It's wrong.


Toddlers have very thin skin and are much more sensitive to ultraviolet light than adults. Before 1 year, the skin does not produce melanin: UV is not filtered. It is therefore necessary to keep your baby in the shade (and fresh air, if possible). For up to 3 years, the melanocyte system remains immature and your child is particularly sensitive to sunburn. So avoid exposing it. Sunburns accumulated during childhood increase the risk of developing skin cancer in adulthood.
