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.

Physical Therapy is concerned with identifying and maximizing movement potential. Physical therapists are highly trained professionals who treat people of all ages who have medical problems or other health-related conditions that limit their ability to move and perform functional activities in their daily lives. Physical therapists will assist in techniques that promote the ability to move, reduce pain, restore function and prevent disability.

The major areas assisted by physical therapy are listed below.

Neurological/Neurosurgical: people with functional problems because of damage to the brain and spinal cord or nerves. Examples are those with stroke, multiple sclerosis, Parkinson's Disease, spinal cord injury, cerebral palsy, acute and chronic pain.
