Watching the children of today huddling under their shade structures where once kids would roam free and unfettered has always depressed me. As does seeing them swaddled in those silly legionnaires hats. I’ve long wondered if the health benefits on the skin cancer front aren’t coming at too high a price.
Now the ABC brings news that “Osteoporosis Australia is calling for the ‘no hat, no play’ policy in school playgrounds to be reassessed in the ACT and Tasmania, because children are not getting enough sunlight.”
I look forward to the squeals from the fun police.
