COLUMBIA – Young children and their parents will have a chance to learn about health concerns, good eating habits and exercise on Saturday at the Healthy Families Fun Fair.
Thirty-five learning stations with more than 40 health, fitness and nutrition experts will be available to answer questions, do a variety of tests and offer fun activities, said Sean Spence, coordinator of the event, in a news release.
The Kung Fu Academy will promote and educate the public about Chinese martial arts such as tai chi.
Nasopure, a company that manufactures nose-cleaning kits, will give a demonstration at its station. The company's device cleans nasal passages with a squirt bottle.
“Nasal problems are very common among children," Hana Solomon, a board certified pediatrician and the founder of Nasopure, said.
Sessions lasting 30 minutes each will include assessments for asthma and allergies and a kung fu exhibition.
There will also be free language screenings and hearing tests.
The fair will be held from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. at Stoney Creek Inn, 2601 S. Providence Road.
