Food, Health and Education is the mission of the Kids’ Health and Wellness Fair on February 4th, 2023 from 11:00 AM to 1:00 PM at the Pip Moyer Recreation Center at Truxtun Park, Annapolis, MD. The Fair is sponsored by Annapolis Pediatrics.
The Fair purpose is to encouraging wellness as a whole for our children and providing information and resources to local families. It is free to families in the community, with lunch from Mission BBQ and food boxes for the first 100 people from the Anne Arundel County Food Bank. The event will host a variety of family-fun activities for kids ages 5-13 and offer many local community resources.
Listen in as Dr. Turner and players from the Navy Football team describe what to expect at the Kids’ Health and Wellness Fair and how Annapolis Pediatrics has worked with other community groups to make the Fair a reality.
Annapolis Pediatrics’ partner and pediatrician, Dr. Margaret Turner shares her excitement to bring this free community event to life, “We are excited to host this event with Navy football players in attendance and along with our other sponsors to bring health and wellness education to our community. Healthy eating and exercise are the foundations on which long-lasting habits for wellness are built upon. We hope the kids in our community will come out and take advantage of the opportunity to come play with our hometown football team!”
Players from the Navy Football team will be in attendance leading active play with the kids, taking pictures and signing autographs.
The Health and Wellness Fair will include many community organizations such as the Anne Arundel County Public Library who will be giving out books for kids to take home and leading a STEM activity.
