Encouraging Healthy Living with the Healthy Family Expo

A priority in our home is promoting healthy bodies and minds–both for the kids and ourselves as parents.  We try to cook homemade meals each day while taking into account the sugar content as well as Nya's dairy intolerance. Our boys flourish with a lot of activity as it helps to keep their attitudes positive; from jumping on the trampoline to playing hockey in the alley, it's easy to make exercise fun while spending time together as a family. I personally need my 10,000-15,000 steps a day and feel so much better mentally when I do. 

Are these priorities for your home as well? Are you looking for some family fun that involves kid's concerts, an Active Kid Zone, numerous vendors with samples and prizes all for a great admission price? The Healthy Family Expo is a fun-filled day for the whole family that introduces Metro Vancouver parents to small steps & simple solutions for healthy, active, eco-friendly living.

Highlights of the 4th annual Healthy Family Expo coming up on Sunday, March 26, include:
·         Meeting popular CBC Kids characters Daniel Tiger, Super WHY!, Bookaboo & Scout;
·         Bobs & LoLo and Jessie Farrell concerts featuring songs celebrating the natural world;

{We have been Bobs & Lolo fans since the beginning and have been to many concerts!}

·         First 200 adults through the door receive an adult pass to Science World; and
·         Partial proceeds of ticket sales support Canucks Autism Network sports programs.

I’m most excited to see that Springfree Trampoline is a new addition to this year’s Active Kid Zone at the Expo! It’s the smart active living choice that delivers for the whole family and you can test-drive one for yourself at the event on March 26th. 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! We bought a Springfree Trampoline last year and it is one of the greatest investments we have made–especially with the basketball hoop. I love that it is so safe and and encourages activity all year long.

Adult Expo tickets are $15 each online, cash at the door, or at London Drugs from March 1-26.  Kids under 16 get in FREE and ALL ATTRACTIONS are included with admission!
