Child health and safety advice for families heading to family-friendly festivals
Loud noises can be potentially damaging to children’s ear with the effects showing later in life. According to the RNID (Royal National Institute for Deaf People), a study from the Sahlgrenska university hospital in Gothenburg shows that 50% of all children between 9 and 16 have experienced tinnitus, buzzing or ringing in their ears at some time, so it’s likely that younger children may be affected, too. Ear muffs, like Peltor Kids recommended by The Royal National Institute for Deaf People, are essential if you want to protect your child’s ears from the potential damaging effects of loud noise. Ear plugs are an alternative but you might have a job getting them in!
