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.

Kipling Emergency Department to re-open, New date August 25

Twenty-four hour emergency and inpatient services at Kipling Memorial Health Centre will resume at 7 a.m. Monday August 25, 2014.  From now until then, emergency services will be provided from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. only, due to a shortage of nursing staff.

“This is a longer period of time than we originally understood the facility would be short-staffed,” says Marga Cugnet, CEO, Sun Country Health Region.  “At the end of June, we believed the short staffing would last until July 9.  We apologize for this inconvenience to the people of Kipling and area.”

Mrs. Cugnet said people should always call 911 if they need an ambulance.

If they can benefit from other kinds of health care information during the hours the emergency department is closed, they can call 811 for Healthline or sear on Healthline online at

"If you are travelling to an emergency department, please travel to Moosomin Integrated Health Centre, Broadview Union Hospital, or Arcola Health Centre.  That will allow you to find emergency services as soon as possible,” she says.

Sun Country Health Region is working diligently to find additional nursing staff.  If we can re-open these services sooner than August 25, we will advise the public immediately.”
