Nutrition Tips Winter 2015

Children who have meals with their family not only eat better and are healthier; they learn to socialize and do better in school. Family meals give a time and place to keep up with what is going on with everyone, help each other out, and tell family stories. Enjoying family meals help to keep food in its place as only one of life's great pleasures. Pay attention to the food and enjoy it when it is time to eat, forget about it between times. A rushed morning without breakfast can make eating well challenging. Try these quick breakfast ideas: A long afternoon commute can make eating well challenging. Pack a snack for the afternoon before your ride so you aren’t over hungry when you get home. Healthy food choices at home and at school can help students do better in school and be healthier over all. Part of learning about healthy eating is practicing. If your children’s’ school does not teach food preparation, ask your school administration how you can help to support offering classes. Snack foods like chips, candy, and pop fill children up, but don’t supply any of the nutrition they need to grow and learn. These foods should not be offered in school. Help the school community council and school administration in your children’s school to promote healthy foods in the school.

A letter from the Vice President of Human Resources to all staff:

May 4, 2011 
Dear SCHR Employee,

Sun Country Health Region (SCHR), along with other health regions, the Saskatchewan Cancer Agency and 3sHealth (formerly SAHO) have taken steps to provide electronic pay statements for you and other staff through a web-based online service called Gateway Online. Gateway Online is an important tool to support administrative needs of health care workers across Saskatchewan.

We would now like to announce the next level of service coming to Gateway Online.  As of June 22, you will be able to make changes or updates to your personal information that is currently on our system relevant to your work. These changes or updates can now be done electronically by you through Gateway Online.

This means if you need to make changes to your personal information on the SCHR system that you will have secure access to your personal information 24/7 from home, work, when you’re on vacation, or wherever you have internet access!  This includes information such as your name, address, gender, marital status, emergency contacts and banking information.  Making changes to your personal information online is more accurate, results in fewer errors, will be more timely, easy to use and will eliminate unneeded steps by notifying all departments of changes to your personal information with your one online update.

Even though the launch date is scheduled to be June 22, there will be a period following this where there will be a parallel process of both electronic access and paper forms.  This is to monitor the overall effectiveness.

In the future, the plan is to have more online human resources processes added to Gateway Online.  We are looking to add leave requests, job postings and other processes which staff regularly access and use.  As these become available you will be notified.

Additional information and instructions for the personal information services on Gateway Online will be posted on the Sun Country Health Region website under the Career section in the coming weeks.

Yours truly, 
Don Ehman
Vice President
Human Resources
Sun Country Health Region
