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.

Arcola Health Centre re-opens

Sun Country Health Region (SCHR) is pleased to announce the re-opening of in-patient services and the Emergency Department at the Arcola Health Centre, effective Monday, July 19, 2010.

The Emergency Department at the Arcola Health Centre has been closed since October 2009 due to lack of physician coverage in the area. As of 7 a.m. on July 19, the Emergency Department will be fully operational on a full-time basis, 24 hours per day, seven days a week. 

Two physicians have recently been recruited to work in the community, enabling a full complement of four physicians in the Carlyle/Arcola area to provide emergency coverage for the health centre.

 “We are very pleased to be able to provide full hospital and emergency treatment once again to the people of Arcola and area,” says Cal Tant, President and CEO of Sun Country Health Region.

“We know everyone will feel more at ease now that emergency services will be available closer to home.”

SCHR is grateful to the members of the community who recruited the physicians, he says.

Residents are reminded to utilize the Arcola Health Centre Emergency Department for emergency purposes only.

Routine medical care needs should be addressed by scheduling an appointment at the Arcola Family Health Clinic 455-2287, the Carlyle Primary Health Clinic (Medical Clinic) 453-6795, or the physician of your choice.
