Swim Zip

Written by  //  May 18, 2012  //  Kids Health, Shopping Reviews  //  1 Comment

Now that you’ve got your beach activities picked, bags packed and sunscreen bought, you need a couple of these.  We don’t want to be preachy, but we’re going to be preachy.  Protect your kids from the sun.  Fact: Even 1 blistering sunburn may double the risk of melanoma.  The damage the occurs in childhood may not develop until middle age.  Damn.  Founder Betsy Johnson was diagnosed with skin cancer at age 26 and made it her mission to protect other children.  (90% of all sun exposure happens before 18 years old).  She turned her passion for fashion, kids, health and function into Swim Zip.  With 99% UVA and UVB protection, these funky suits are the bomb.  My son won’t take his off.

    I absolutely agree that Americans need to daistacrlly change their eating habits and incorporate more fruits, vegetables and whole grains in their diet. I’ve always loved veggies and fruits. However, I think that she is a bit misleading in certain aspects. Such as saying that salmon is 53% fat, there are different types of fats, salmon is polyunsaturated fat and is actually quite good for you! You cant AVOID fats altogether, but you can pick SMARTER choices in fats tho!
