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.

Expanded translation service in Sun Country Health Region

Sun Country Health Region has contracted with a Canadian company that will provide translation and interpretative services in any language for visitors and residents needing health care whose first language is not English.

“This is an impressive new service that will ensure the health care needs of everyone coming to any of our facilities or programs are looked after appropriately,” says Janice Giroux, Vice President of Community Health for Sun Country Health Region.

“Our staff can pick up the telephone any time, day or night, and reach someone who will translate for us,” she says.  

“It takes less than 60 seconds to be connected, so people no longer need to worry about not being understood. If you come to us for any kind of health care need, including mental health services, we will find someone to connect with you.”

An influx of new people into South East Saskatchewan in recent years has made this service necessary, says Mrs. Giroux. “We want to ensure that our patients/clients and residents are all understood and this is the most supportive way to do that.”
