George Georgievski is the author of two books – Lunchbox Express and Air Fryer Express – and his Instagram account has a following of more than 167,000.

The event will include a special appearance from Geelong mascots Half-Cat and Clawdia, a mini-masterclass with Georgie Georgievski, a Q&A with some Geelong Cats players, and a mini-resilience and wellbeing challenge to be completed by teams of parents and children.

The GMHBA Healthy Heroes parents event will be held at Deakin Cats Community Centre, GMHBA Stadium (near Gate 8) on Thursday, July 22 from 4.15pm-6pm.

Refreshments will be served on arrival.
