Parents and caregivers of tots and preschoolers can get tips from the pros next week about how to keep their little ones safe and active.
Organized by the Tri-Cities Early Childhood Development Committee, the annual Tri-Cities Healthy Kids Fair — geared for families and support workers with newborns and children aged up to six — is on Thursday, April 18 in Port Moody.
Representatives from community groups and other organizations will be on hand to talk to parents and provide information on a wide range of topics including recreation and literacy.
And visitors to the fair will be able to get a free children’s book while kids can scoop some outdoor toys to take home.
Translation will be available for Cantonese, Mandarin, Korean and Farsi speakers.
The event, which runs at the Port Moody recreation complex (300 Ioco Rd.) from 9:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m., will be catered by students in the culinary arts program at Gleneagle secondary in Coquitlam.
Admission is free; however, non-perishable items for the Share food bank will be accepted.
