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.

Update on Redvers Health Centre Addition

The new Vice President Corporate and Finance of Sun Country Health Region says a review of the Redvers Health Centre addition shows it is about 80 per cent complete.

“We should be ready to move residents into the new wing of the facility by this spring.” says John Knoch, who joined SCHR Jan. 14.

A number of unexpected issues has delayed the project from our original schedule,” he said.

“We recognize we are a little behind the original construction schedule but it’s all moving along.”

Ductwork installation, dry walling, plumbing, painting and sprinkler head installation was all completed before the end of the year. Some exterior work like sidewalks and the installation of sprinklers outside the building was also completed before late fall when the cold snowy weather began.

When construction is completed, residents will be transferred from the 24-bed Centennial Haven wing to the new addition. The addition is made up of two 12-bed houses.

The Region plans to renovate the old wing for therapy services, staff rooms, offices, storage, and meeting rooms. That renovation should begin in the summer.
