Learn easy ways to read food labels, get quick recipes for healthy meals, discover what supplements can support them and take advantage of discounts on kids’ supplements.

From 9:30 to 11:30 a.m., pediatrician Marney Turvill, owner of Healthy Green Goods, will talk about a breakthrough, non-invasive neurofeedback treatment called LENS (Low Energy Neurofeedback System), which is a way to treat the root cause of symptoms associated with ADD/ADHD, depression, anxiety, traumatic brain injury, migraine and many other chronic problems, without the nasty side effects of prescription drugs.
