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: http://tinyurl.com/nn6b95d 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.

Update on Radville Marian Health Centre construction
The new Vice President Corporate and Finance for Sun Country Health Region says construction of a new, integrated health facility in Radville is 48 per cent complete.
“We expect to be moving residents into a bright new health centre by late summer,” says John Knoch.
“Although we’re somewhat behind our original schedule at this point we are working with the contractors to make up the time.”
Construction began in the fall of 2011.
Metal roof decking, plumbing rough-ins, mechanical ductwork and sprinklers, window installation, interior stud walls, a winter heating supply, and some electrical work have all been completed. Some outside work on the parking lot was completed before the cold weather began.
When construction is complete, the new facility on the west edge of town will replace Radville Marian Health Centre’s original 1948 building and its 1951 nursing home addition.
