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.

Community and Health Programs

Progress through perseverance

This friendly, active community is known for its culture, sporting, concert events and dinner theatre.

Wawota is situated on the edge of the Little Pipestone Valley,  a natural recreation area, currently utilized for nature trails and hiking in the summer. Residents enjoy snowmobiling, tobogganing, and cross-country skiing during the winter.

Wawota is actually derived from an Indian word meaning, "deep snow." The town upholds its motto: "Progress through perseverance" because it had the potential of becoming a ghost town 30 years ago with the loss of the town's railroad. Despite the loss, the strength of the community and their dedication to the town has made Wawota grow and progress to what it is today. It has attracted many to its community hospital, special care home, historical parks and museum, and casino.

Pharmacy services are available in the community.

Population: 538.
