5. Handy sized sunscreen

It's so easy to get caught out when out and about in the sunshine. Sometimes it's just not possible to carry round a full sized bottle of sun lotion in your handbag at all times for your children. That is why NIVEA SUN has developed Kids's Pocket Size - £3 from Superdrug - the perfect handbag solution for your children's protection needs.
