CHICAGO RIDGE, IL -- (MARKET WIRE) -- 10/11/06 -- Ewire -- In response to families who are looking for healthy, natural ways to raise their children -- and also positively impact their communities and the planet -- the Naturally Healthy Children's Expo will debut October 5-7, 2007, at Chicago's Navy Pier. Naturally Healthy Children's Expo will feature exhibitors, celebrity chefs, and respected experts all focused on the importance of raising children in a balanced, holistic way.

"Parents and caregivers -- moms, dads, grandparents -- are faced with an array of confusing choices," said Mary Beth Rebedeau of the NHC Staff. "Parents wonder about alternative/supplemental/natural treatments for childhood illnesses and disease. They want to create a healthier home. They look for wholesome, positive family projects like recycling and organic gardening, and they want to know about alternatives to traditional energy for their homes and vehicles. How can families stay healthy with holistic medicine, yoga, and other exercises?" she continued. "Chicago is consistently rated as one of the greenest cities in the world. Due to extensive local media coverage, green issues are top of mind for many Chicagoland families, and so we look forward to assembling hundreds of resources for these families at Navy Pier next October 5-7."

Suppliers of wholesome, natural products and services will be available for discussion and demonstration on the exhibit floor. Four activity stages will feature panel presentations, healthy cooking demonstrations, and exercise, reading, and age appropriate activities. Throughout the weekend, families will be able to exchange information, learn about, and enjoy:
