Don't sweat it, kids

Stay cool and beat the heat on hot summer days:

If you feel weak, dizzy or thirsty, take a break in the shade, drink water and tell an adult.

The day is usually hottest from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Play outside during the cooler parts of the day.

Dress cool in loose-fitting, light colored clothes.

Keep a water bottle handy to guzzle during water breaks.

If you're playing hard, a sports drink can help to replace the water you've sweated away.
