Starting at an early age, parents should be concerned about their children's skin. Excess exposure to the sun can cause many skin problems that appear later on in your child's life. You might consider using a natural sun screen so that sunburn does not take place. A proper diet can also protect the skin from the inside. What is stressed is proper nutrition, even at the earliest ages. A diet rich in fruits and vegetables is essential for proper growth. Babies on formulas should be monitored for fussiness, gas, stomach pains, etc. Many formulas are derived from cows milk, which many infants have trouble digesting. Alternatives to cows milk include rice and soy formulas, as well as others products. Just switching to a different formula (organic is preferred), can eliminate many early health problems. If you can teach your children proper nutrition, starting at an early age, they will eat and stay healthy throughout their lives.
