Fit Fam - Liv

There’s so much more to April than Mum and Dad’s secret stash of chocolate eggs. This month, we’re tackling seasonal sore throats, repairing abdominal muscles overworked by baby bumps, and taking a trip out to Lantau to tend trees in honour of Earth Day.

April 22 is Earth Day, and to mark the event, Ark Eden is hosting a tree care workshop on South Lantau, giving families the opportunity to be hands-on horticulturalists for the day. Participants will be divided up into small groups and will dig, water and tend to trees and saplings at Ark Eden’s forest research and monitoring station in Mui Wo, all the while learning about the importance of trees in nature and wider conservation issues. If your little one is happiest with a little dirt under their fingernails, then this is the workshop for them.

Workshop costs $600 per adult and $250 per child (minimum age five), with all proceeds supporting Ark Eden’s forest restoration work. For more information visit arkedenonlantau.com.

A Taste Of Honeybh_littleRemedies_1 copy

A coughing kid means sleepless nights all round, and the lingering sore throats that follow can be pretty frustrating for little chatterboxes with lots to say. Little Remedies’ Sore Throat Pops are lollipops with added soothing properties, meaning no wrestling required to get them to take their medicine. Made from honey – a proven natural cough suppressant – the lollies are free from artificial flavours, colours and sweeteners and taste like a treat too.

Costs $57 for 10. Available online at bubble-hippo.com.

Quit The Split

With around 60 percent of women experiencing some degree of abdominal muscle separation during pregnancy, it’s surprising that few actually realise that this is often the root cause of the dreaded “mum tum.” Flex is helping post-partum mothers bid bye-bye to splitsville with their “Repairing The Diastasis” workshop, taking place at their Wyndham Street studio on April 26. Offering an assessment of the abdominal muscles plus guided core exercises to repair and restore core strength, this one is a must for new mums.

Workshop costs $390. For more information visit flexhk.com.
