Advocate Sherman Hospital will present the fair from 5 to 7 p.m. Thursday at the library, 270 N. Grove Ave., Elgin.

In addition to healthy cooking, eating and exercise tips, Sherman Hospital pediatricians, dieticians and other experts will teach children and parents how to make healthy choices together through interactive games and activities. Free blood pressure and diabetes screenings will also be offered.
