The definition of “family” may have changed over the years, but at the end of the day, they’re still families. If you’re looking for a fun filled day that everyone in the family can enjoy, plan on attending the City Parent Family Show at the Waterloo Region Museum.
Exhibitors covering health and wellness, education, adventures, performing arts, RESPs, and much more will be at their booths to answer any of your questions.
There will be several informative seminars throughout the day, including Pregonomics: Your Baby, Your Money, Your Future, presented by Heritage Education Funds. This seminar presents the financial implications of having a baby and helps parents plan and budget for their bundle of joy.
Juvenile diabetes is on the rise, and Sunrise Centre Shoppers Drug Mart pharmacist and diabetes educator, Mona Kshatri, discusses and answers your questions on this life threatening disease.
Do you wonder how to get a picky eater to love what you cook? How to deal with food sensitivities? Sit in on the Healthy Eating for Families — how to get your kids to ask for broccoli seminar presented by Healthy Balanced Living.
