TriCounty Health Department’s Women, Infants and Children (WIC) program will hold its first annual Healthy Easter Egg Hunt on March 28, from 11 a.m. to noon for all children, ages 5 and under.
Unlike traditional egg hunts during the Easter season, WIC is ensuring the event be candy-free. Children who attend will receive healthy treats. Prizes during the egg hunt will encourage the children to get active, get outside and play.
The Easter Bunny will be available for children to meet, greet and get a photo.
WIC staff will be available to answer questions about eligibility and make appointments. WIC assists with education in lactation, assists with food supplementation and more for children 5 and under, infants, pregnant and nursing women.
The hunt will take place at TriCounty Health Department, in Vernal, 133 S. 500 E. Children are asked to bring their own basket.
