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.

Extended hours for Carlyle Primary Health Care Clinic

Sun Country Health Region is pleased to announce a period of extended hours at the Carlyle Primary Health Care Clinic this summer.

The expanded clinic hours will be held from 9 a.m. to 8 p.m. on the first and third Thursday of each month, beginning May 15 and extending to the end of August.  

Clinic hours on all other week days will be from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. as usual.

“We look forward to this opportunity to provide extended access to patients,” says Wanda Miller, Regional Director for Primary Health Care.

“We believe it will be of value to those patients who work regular hours and find it hard to access health services during regular business hours. They will have the option twice a month to book an evening appointment.”

“The extended hours will be available during the summer as a trial run. We will evaluate the service at the end of that time to determine if it fills a community need.”

Sun Country Health Region has focused on the expansion of primary health care clinics in its communities over the past four years to increase public access to basic services delivered by a team of health care professionals.

Primary Health Care is about
• staying healthy: preventing illness and injury,
• managing chronic conditions,
• treating acute medical illness,
• promoting healthier living and
• accessing the best health provider for the job.
