An apple a day keeps the doctor away- if this saying is not just an old wives' tale to you, and being in the pink of health is what you're concerned about, set this weekend aside.

The Today Health & Wellness Exhibition will be held at the Singapore Expo Hall 6B from Jan 25 to 27.

You'll have fun while learning about health and well-being as the fair brings together a host of health solutions under one roof, from tonic and exercise products to talks on osteoporosis and diet.

With close to 60 exhibitors showing at the three-day event, visitors can expect a wide range of products and services with something for everyone. This is the second health fair organised by Today.

For starters, a host of talks and seminars by the Health Promotion Board and ParkwayHealth, among others, have been lined up to educate visitors on topics like aesthetic skin treatments, elderly healthcare and how to quit smoking.

Visitors with their families in tow can also join in the fun and show off their bundle of joy by signing up for the Baby Contest.

Enter your little one in one of four segments � Chubbiest Cheeks, Most Enchanting Smile, Like Mother Like Baby and Most Beautiful Eyes � to compete for the top prize.

The winner in each of these categories wins $800 in cash and a $500 hamper, while first runners-up get $300 and a hamper of the same value.

Second runners-up won't go home empty-handed either � they take home $200 in cash and a $200 hamper.

Or join the Adventure AdTag Hunt, a game in which participants get clues to search for a series of ad tags hidden among different booths, with a total of $500 in cash up for grabs.

You might want to be just a spectator of these contests, but be sure to participate in the free health and Lasik screenings that will be available to all visitors.

Between 4pm and 8pm on Friday, and 2pm and 8pm on Saturday and Sunday, visitors can visit the Lasik screening booth to get their eyes checked.

If you have been contemplating going for Lasik surgery, this screening will help determine if your eyes are suited to undergo the procedure.

Or if it's your general well-being you're concerned about, the fair also has just the thing for you.

From 10am to 7pm on Friday and 10am to 8pm on Saturday and Sunday, visitors can get a free basic health screening that will give you the latest update on your blood pressure and glucose levels.

In between shopping for healthcare products and attending seminars, take a break with MediaCorp artistes, such as Tay Ping Hui, Vincent Ng and Felicia Chin, who will play games and share their health and exercise regimen with the audience.

Campus Superstar alumnus Teresa Tseng and Shawn Tok will also take to the stage with songs.

In addition, popular Love 97.2 DJ, Billy, will share his experience on recovering from surgery and recipes designed for those undergoing chemotherapy.

Cooking enthusiasts can also look forward to cooking demonstrations by food author and Today's foreign editor, Pauline D Loh, who will meld Traditional Chinese Medicine with Chinese cuisine for a taste of something different.

So, bring the whole family down for an educational, fun-filled weekend!
