Healthy moves

If you’re headed south for the holidays, don’t bother searching store shelves for a “low-protection” sunscreen.

Some stores, including CVS, have stopped selling sunscreens with a SPF lower than 15. The Food and Drug Administration says oils at such levels don’t prevent cancer.

Other stores appeal to health conscious families by moving candy from the high impulse check out lane or placing snacks on high shelves, above the reach of children.

Stores can move the junk food, but wherever the chips go, kids (and some parents!) will find it.
