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.

Recruitment and Retention Campaign for Health Care Employees

The Sun Country Regional Health Authority (SCRHA) has embarked on an intensive Recruitment and Retention Campaign.

Earl Kickley, chair of the SCRHA Board, told Board members at their March 28 meeting the campaign will use specially-designed advertisements to attract professionals to work in the Region's facilities and programs.

"The advertisements celebrate this part of the province as a great place to live and work," said Earl.

The ads will be published in a national magazine, several professional magazines, and newspapers in both the Maritimes and Alberta. "We're hoping to appeal to former residents of the province to come home to work for us, as well as new residents," he said.

The ads are being placed in newspapers in Saskatchewan, as well, to remind our own nurses and doctors we have jobs here, and to encourage young people to think about a career in health care," he said.

Earl told the Board the Recruitment and Retention Campaign includes meetings with community officials and businesses within SCRHA to discuss a joint advertising campaign in the future that targets jobs for the spouses of health care employees.

"We want to see if we can work together so that when we receive an application for a nurse, we can hope to find a job for his/her spouse, too," he said. "We think that might be the way to encourage people to work for us," he said.
