Like most of us these days, I want my family and I to live healthy and active lives while minimizing our carbon footprint, but sometimes it’s hard to know where to start, or what options are available to us. It can all be pretty overwhelming, but the good news is that there are lots of simple solutions out there to help keep your family and your environment in tip-top shape. You can find out more about the many great ideas and products for healthy living by heading down to the Healthy Family Expo this year. It’s only a month away – exciting!! The countdown is on!
Here are the details:
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 (oh YES!), 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. I know my kids are going to go wild for these activities, and it’ll be great for them to burn off some energy. I’m especially curious about the hamster ball track – I bet it’s just as fun as I’m imagining it in my head!
- Bobs & LoLo concerts at 11 am and 2 pm. My daughter loves singing and dancing to their songs, so I’m thrilled to be able to take her to this.
- $10,000 Grand Prize Showcase, including a 1-year lease on a Toyota Prius c
