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.

We are a Tobacco-Free Environment

Sun Country Health Regiona (SCHR) adopted a new Tobacco-Free Environment Policy on May 1, 2006.

"Given the known danger of smoking and second-hand smoke, it just makes sense for a health organization to discourage people from using tobacco," says Cal Tant, President and Chief Executive Officer. "Most of our staff and most of our public are non-smokers. This new policy will come as no surprise and little inconvenience to most people. In fact, most people will welcome it either because it frees then from second-hand smoke or helps them cut back." Cal says the evidence from every institution that has instituted smoking policies shows a direct link between smoking restrictions and smoking behavior."Fewer people smoke in areas with strong anti-smoking policies. A ban on smoking on our property fosters an environment of respect that protects staff, clients/patients/residents and visitors from second-hand smoke," he says.

Three temporary exceptions will be permitted:

  1. Palliative care inpatients
  2. Mental health inpatients and residents in special care homes will all be allowed to smoke in restricted locations.
  3. Tobacco use that is an integral part of traditional spiritual or cultural practices or ceremonies will continue to be permitted in any SCRHA facility, subject to the provisions in The Saskatchewan Tobacco Act, 2001 (and amendments).

This is as per Policy E-00-05 Smoke and Tobacco Free Environment
