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.

Animal Bites

You should seek medical attention from your family physician or local health centre if you are bitten by an animal and the bite breaks the surface of your skin. Health centres and physicians report all animal bites to Public Health.

Public Health Inspectors investigate each case to ensure there is no possibility of rabies. Any animal that bites a person should be observed for 10 days to be sure that it does not develop rabies symptoms.

Do not destroy the animal before the 10 day observation period is over.

Contact your Public Health Inspector for more details. The Medical Health Officer may recommend rabies vaccine if there is a significant risk. Rabies vaccine is given to animal bite victims if the biting animal is rabid or if the biting animal cannot be found and observed for 10 days.



Only information that is essential for the animal bite investigation will be shared.
