A Weekend Of Wellness Awaits

By | News

October 18 and 19 At Healthy Living Market

WILTON – Now that the family has settled in to the fall routine: back at school, at work, etc. The Healthy Living Market and Café (3065 Route 50 at the Wilton Mall) Wellness Department has put together a weekend of free, informative and fun family activities for everyone to eat smarter and just live better. 


According to David Wolfe, wellness manager at the Market, “It's all about sustainable education. We want to provide important information that gives families choices throughout the season, every day, every year. Healthy Living has so many resources that help to educate families in making the transition from unhealthy, toxic eating habits to wiser, healthier food choices that are just as convenient, but serve the body well.” 


“A Healthy Living Wellness Event not only provides free education for raising awareness they are also intended to open the eyes and hearts of families in our local communities to make healthy lifestyle choices that last their entire lives.” Wolfe continued. 


The growing trends of childhood and adult obesity and the desire of many families to have information to combat this dilemma are at the heart of the philosophy behind Healthy Living’s offerings next weekend. “Healthy Living’s Wellness Department is here to help families win the obesity and diabetes epidemic that is sweeping over the entire nation, including Upstate New York.  This two-day event provides a number of demos and free Wellness Classes out of our Learning Center that will help parents and kids make healthy and wise food choices... for the rest of their lives.” Wolfe concluded. 

At the Market’s wellness center, an emphasis is placed on hands-on experience and demonstrations.  While food is at the core of the experience, the offerings go beyond food into the realm of overall lifestyle. 


All the presentations are one hour and they are full of information to benefit mind, body and soul. It’s all there for you – and it’s all free!


Here are detailed descriptions of the presentations at next weekend’s event:
