A show that has been running in the Okanagan since 2004 comes to the Fraser Valley for the first time this weekend.

“We want to provide inspiration and ideas to parents who are looking to create a healthy lifestyle and home environment for their family,” said Shara Mendoza, event organizer.

“There are also many ways at the show for parents to simplify their routine and take care of themselves, such as meal delivery services, fitness programs, natural home and body products and more.”

The Health and Wellness Show also has four presentation areas – info pods – where guests can relax in a comfy lounge chair and take in a variety of 15-minute presentations by experts on topics such as nutrition, safety, sleep, exercise, life planning and more.
