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.

Community Advisory: Update on Kenosee Lake Superslides

During a visit to the Kenosee Superslides on June 26 by Sun Country Health Region's Public Health Inspections, it was noted that the water quality in the water canal was poor and there were safety concerns.

The water canal and the waterslides were closed on June 26.

Several schools were at the water park on June 26. The Public Heath offices where those schools are located were informed of the situation.

Sun Country Health Region has now been informed the waterslides were also open prior to June 26 and that several schools used the waterslides prior to June 26. SCHR has provided that new information to Public Health offices where those schools are located.  

SCHR Public Health Inspectors worked with management of the Kenosee Superslides to address the deficiencies and ensure the safety of the public.

The slides at Kenosee Superslides were opened on June 29.

SCHR will continue to work with the Superslide staff and management to monitor operations at the Kenosee Superslides - and all other indoor and outdoor pools in the Region - and will address any deficiencies identified as necessary.
