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.

Medical Scooter Awareness Program planned this summer

The Acquired Brain Injury Program at Sun Country Health Region is pleased to offer the Medical Scooter Awareness Program this summer in a location near you. Several communities have been selected so far, and others can be added.

The safety program to inform the public about the best operating procedures for the scooters can be held indoors or outdoors, in a health centre, parking lot, mall or a blocked-off street. The program takes 1-2 hours and is provided at no cost.

Information provided at the sessions includes safe operating, and the “rules of the road” according to Saskatchewan Government Insurance.  For instance, scooter drivers are designated as pedestrians and must use sidewalks whenever possible.

Scooters are becoming more common in the Region as the scooter provides increased independence for users. Safety has become a growing issue as the amount of road traffic increases.

If you or a loved one use a medical scooter or are thinking about purchasing a medical scooter, please consider attending one of these sessions.

  1. Redvers Health Centre, June 19, 11 a.m.
  2. Moose Mountain Lodge, Carlyle, June 26, 10 a.m.
  3. Lampman Curling Rink, June 26, 1:30 p.m.

Dates for sessions in Weyburn and Estevan are still being determined.

Alternatively, please contact Paula Ealey, ABI Coordinator at 306-842-8315 to arrange an additional location.
