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 Memorial Health Centre to re-open

Sun Country Health Region and the Kipling District Health Foundation Inc. are pleased to announce that the emergency department and in-patient services at Kipling Memorial Health Centre will reopen Monday Feb. 25, 2013 at 8 a.m.  

The Region and Foundation have concluded negotiations with a group of doctors from Regina who have agreed to provide services on a rotating basis at the health centre and clinic services on week days at Kipling Medical Clinic.

“We are pleased to have secured a contract with this group of doctors to provide both clinic services and emergency services at the health centre, to meet the health needs of Kipling and area residents,” says Marga Cugnet, CEO of Sun Country Health Region.  “We can appreciate the inconvenience it has caused residents to seek services elsewhere and want to assure them we continue to work towards a permanent solution.”

Another doctor has signed a contract with the Region to practice in Kipling and is currently undertaking the assessment process required for licensure. If successful, it is hoped that she will be licensed by May and prepared to begin a full time practice in Kipling at that time.

“If all goes well with our recruitment, we will have a permanent doctor in Kipling while we continue to recruit for a second doctor,” Mrs. Cugnet says.

“We are aware of the community’s concern over the loss of our only two doctors last fall,” said Allan LaRose, Chairman of the Kipling District Health Foundation Inc.  “We all recognized the need for a quick replacement of the doctors.”

“The group of doctors in the Regina locum group will take turns providing care to Kipling and district area. That group effort will greatly increase the stability of the situation. We are pleased that the Regina locum group will work together to provide the medical services we need in our community,” LaRose said.
