Being a parent is tough right? I don't know about you, but being a sleep…
Health fads are everywhere. It’s hard to escape them and even harder to determine the validity of many of the claims that we are bombarded with on a daily basis. I must admit that I’m a recovering bandwagon hopper, much to the frustration of my family. Lately I’ve been trying to make the “everything in moderation” phrase my motto, which is why I’m so excited about the Healthy Family Expo!
The 2nd annual Healthy Family Expo is coming to the Vancouver Convention Centre on Sunday March 29th from 10 am – 5pm. It’s a fun-filled day for Lower Mainland families with kids aged 0-12 offering small steps & simple solutions to healthy, active, eco-friendly living, including:
- 100+ Exhibitors, lots of shopping and food sampling, and hybrid vehicle test-driving
- Biggest Active Kid Zone in the Lower Mainland, with climbing wall, bouncing, giant hamster ball track, Tumblebus, run bike area, baby crawl zone and family fitness
- Bobs & LoLo concerts at 11 am and 2 pm
- $10,000 Grand Prize Showcase, including a 1-year lease on a Toyota Prius c
- First 200 attendees receive child day ticket to the Sea to Sky Gondola
- And so much more!
Simple is a word I resonate with. I don’t need to clean out my entire pantry and eliminate everything from my diet. I don’t need to start running marathons. I can take one small step, and then another, and then another on a healthy, active living journey along with my family, instead of dragging them kicking and screaming!
It’s going to be an amazing event, but you don’t have to wait until March 29th to join the fun! You can stay connected with the Expo and win lots of prizes online leading up to the event by:
- Joining their Facebook Event (and maybe even scoring one of the $3000 worth of flash giveaways running daily for the whole month of March)
