With kids these days, it can be difficult to maintain a healthy and eco-friendly life. Enter the ModernFamilyExpo, a fun-filled day of learning, tasting, touching, and questioning for the whole family. Bring the whole family this Sunday, February 23rd, to the Pinnacle Hotel at the Pier in North Vancouver where the ModernFamilyExpo will provide simple tools to guide your family in the right direction.
The ModernFamilyExpo is divided into five categories: Pre & Postnatal, Food & Nutrition, Health & Wellness, Eco-Friendly Living, and Active Living. There will be over seventy-five exhibitor booths in these five categories, with lots of healthy food and drink sampling. Exhibitors include DAVIDsTEA, BC Hydro, Vega, and Yogapod.
For kids, there will be a Par-T-Perfect Kid Zone, complete with bouncy castle, face painting, Gymboree & Leap Therapy Play Area, Cinderella Meet & Greet, 4cats crafts station, Giggles Fun Dough play station, and Whole Foods Market “Play With Your Food” Station.
Other expo highlights include fitness classes, workshops, speakers, a family photo contest, a colouring contest for kids, and $10,000 in grand prizes. Fitness classes include pre-natal yoga and “boxing babes”, a gentle boxing class designed for new moms. The workshops, hosted by Modern Mama, focus on important topics such as healthy eating, infant sleep, toddler picky eating, and tips for being a better dad. Speakers include professional sleep consultant Jennifer Garden, registered dietitian Kristen Yarker, and entrepreneur and fitness expert Dai Manuel.
In keeping with the eco-friendly theme, ModernFamilyExpo will have complimentary bicycle valet, zero-waste stations throughout the site, and will be Bullfrogpowered with 100% BC wind power. BabyGoRound will also be onsite to accept donations of gently used baby and child equipment, clothing, and products for families in need.
