Each year, I put out some information on kids and heat tolerance, heat exhaustion, and heat stroke. Below is a great condensed post by the American Academy of Pediatrics. If you have kids exercising in the heat, you should read it. I have also attached some links of my own on Hydration Safety for Kids and my podcast on Heat Illness Prevention & Hydration for athletic performance or high-intensity work situations.
