It’s finally here! Mark your calendars for Sunday, March 26!
The Healthy Family Expo is back for its 4th year and our family is in countdown mode. It is a fun-filled day that introduces Metro Vancouver parents to small steps and simple solutions for healthy, active, eco-friendly living.
It’s as if all the great parent-tested advice you wish you knew is in one gigantic venue and you can see, taste, try out all of it while the kids are happy and active. Yes, I said happy.active.kids.
Here is why we love it:
- Healthy Food samples! So many delicious samples. Our family suffers from Hanger. Snacks are our secret to happy family outings. Last year we got hooked on the Coco Roons by Sejoyia. This year Fuel Your Fire will be making their Healthy Family Expo debut.
- The kids will meet CBC Kids characters Super WHY!, Daniel Tiger and Bookaboo & Scout. I am already preparing myself for the tantrum that will come when it is time for us to leave.
- HUGE Active Kid Zone with rock wall, giant hamster ball race track, Tumblebus & TumbleTown, Sportball & Pedalheads play areas and more. Springfree Trampoline is a new addition to this year’s Active Kid Zone at the Expo. You can test-drive it all for yourself at the event on March 26th.
- Jessie Farrell. My daughter loves her “Take Me Outside” CD. I know the lyrics to “Feeling Free” backwards and forwards and catch myself humming it often. It’s also been a good reminder for me to stop and take a silly break and just play. Thank you Jessie.
- Eco-friendly products and services. Since last year’s Expo our house switched over to AspenClean’s EcoCert certified cleaning products – made locally right here in BC.
And guess what? One lucky family will be taking home a Springfree Trampoline through the Expo’s early bird ticket draw, and another one as part of the Expo’s Grand Prize Showcase (visit the Healthy Family Expo website for terms & conditions for those giveaways). That’s a prize valued at over $3000!
