To the editor:

School is out and summer is here! As a parent or guardian it is important to give your child time each day to go out and play. Children should be getting at least 30 minutes of physical activity a day outside. Cape Coral has many great spots to spend the day and allow them to get the exercise needed. The Cape Coral Yacht Club and Sun Splash are great places for your child to get outside and exercise by swimming. We also have great parks where the children can run and play like Jim Jeffers, Four Freedoms, and Camelot Park. Be sure to use some of these great facilities for some family fun!

Don't forget to stay hydrated and put on the sunscreen! Our hot Florida sun can cause sunburn very quickly if you are not used to going outside every day. The sun can also dehydrate young children rapidly, if you aren't careful about it. Be sure to have your children drink water, even if they are not thirsty for them to stay hydrated. Provide a healthy snack for them while outside - fruits, vegetables and protein bars.

After that long day out in the sun, make sure your children get a good night's sleep. Even though it's summer, they still need a healthy sleep schedule for when school starts back up again in August!

Have a safe and healthy summer!
