A ‘Baby 2 toddler’ expo opened this morning at the Lloyd Erskine Sandiford Centre with an emphasis on health and wellness, food and nutrition, education, housing, family security, sanitation and safety.

Delivering opening remarks at the two-day event on behalf of Minister of Health, John Boyce, Chief Public Nurse, Ann Murrell, described it as, “not just a consumer event where people simply walk through, pick up a few samples, or look at posters and then they are gone”.

Expo director, Jennifer Hyland said the mission of the show, “is to bring the world of pregnancy, early years and parent information under one roof, where moms and dads, grandparents and the entire family in search of solutions to their family-related means can gain direct access to products and services that assist them in making informed decisions for the benefit and the stability of their family”.

Dozens of booths are on display with offers ranging from advice on safety of the child while traveling in a vehicle, and first aid for a baby to food and nutrition for the mother of the unborn and after birth.
