Healthy Crab Fest draws record crowd

This year’s Channel 7 Mandurah Crab Fest in March was sponsored by Healthway promoting healthy eating through LiveLighter.

A record crowd of 165,000 people enjoyed the low cost healthy food on offer at the annual Mandurah Crab Fest.

Since Healthway’s first sponsorship of the event in 2015, the City of Mandurah and Crab Fest food vendors have introduced many more healthy food options making the healthy choice even easier for festival goers this year. There were also plenty of healthy recipes available for people to taste later at home.

Crab Fest gives families a great opportunity to celebrate local art, culture and produce and aims to change the current status quo where seven of every ten adults in the Mandurah area are overweight or obese.
