4th Annual Kids Expo is May 5

Lakewood Health System, Staples, invites families with children to celebrate health and wellness at our 4th Annual Kids Expo Thursday, May 5 from 4-6 p.m. on the Lower Level of Lakewood’s Main Campus (49725 Cty. 83, Staples). The event will include; crafts, games, giveaways, snacks, health and wellness tips for the whole family. An opportunity to meet Dr. Jonathan Claussen and Lakewood pediatrician, Dr. Neil Bratney will also be available.

Lakewood is part of a national initiative called Let’s Go 5-2-1-0 (www.letsgo.org), which promotes healthy lifestyle choices for children, youth and families. The 5-2-1-0 acronym is shorthand for the program’s main message, which is every child should: eat five or more servings of fruit and vegetables; spend less than two hours of recreational screen time (including TV, computers and handheld devices); get at least one hour or more of physical activity and consume zero sugary drinks each day.

For more information or to register for the expo, call 218-894-8623.
