We are counting down the days to the Healthy Family Expo it 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. We’ve gone every year since the expo started and each year we discover something new that we love. Last year, we found the most amazing gluten free pizza crust! If you are thinking about going to the Healthy Family Expo, go! You’ll have a great time.

Our oldest daughter loved meeting Scout from CBC Kids, plus they had her favourite little discovery booth that included all sorts of items from outside. The kids were able to use magnifying glasses to explore as well as build things out of sticks and leaves. It was a great example of how kids can explore and discover anywhere.
When we went last year, Addie was only 5 months old and we had a bit of a crazy start to the day. We ended up not having enough diapers with us. Thankfully, Seventh Generation was at the expo and came to our rescue with diapers and wipes. There was even a little area where we were able to regroup and relax a bit.
We’re incredibly excited to see that Springfree Trampoline is a new addition to this year’s Active Kid Zone at the Expo! If we could put a Springfree Trampoline in our yard, we would have one. Sadly strata frowns upon the idea. Springfree Trampolines are the smart active living choice that delivers for the whole family. You can test one out at the event on March 26th.
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!
Adult Expo tickets: are $15 each online, cash at the door, or at London Drugs from March 1-26
