TORONTO, June 16 /CNW/ - TVOKids invites you to get up, get active and have fun on Canada's birthday! TVOKids' Don't Sit Still Tour will perform a free high-energy live stage show on Canada Day at Queen's Park in Toronto.

As longtime champions of healthy minds and healthy bodies for children, TVOKids hosts Mark Sykes and Kara Harun will co-host the Don't Sit Still Tour Canada Day performance on Thursday July 1. The show begins at 2:15 pm and will take place at the main stage at Queen's Park, Toronto. The show is approximately 30 minutes long.

Presented by EatRight Ontario, with sponsorship in part by Egg Farmers of Ontario, the TVOKids Don't Sit Still Tour travels to communities across Ontario and features the ever-popular TVOKids hosts in a free high-energy stage show that encourages a healthy, active lifestyle. Young audiences and their families can enjoy new songs, new dance moves, and non-stop opportunities to join in and follow along.

"The Ontario Government is pleased to support the TVOKids Don't Sit Still Tour. Reaching out to children and parents with important messages on making healthy eating choices and being more active for better health is important. The show is an interactive and fun way to reach thousands of children throughout the province," says Margarett Best, Ontario's Minister of Health Promotion.

This season's new "Chef of the Day" contest invites kids to send in a healthy breakfast, lunch or dinner menu to http://www.tvokids.com/events/dss for a chance to appear on stage with the TVOKids hosts when the Don't Sit Still show comes to their city. Winners will also receive a TVOKids prize.

"Ontario egg farmers are proud to promote healthy eating in the province," says Carolynne Griffith, Chair of Egg Farmers of Ontario. "The 'Chef of the Day' contest offers a fun opportunity for kids to share their favourite nutritious meals, and we look forward to seeing the entries."
