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.

Wellness Clinics

The Wellness Clinic's purpose is to promote the well-being of people in our communities, with a focus on prevention and early intervention. The Clinic is facilitated by Home Care Nurses and Home Health Aides.

During the clinic, staff may perform a variety of basic health assessments and provide education. Staff may assess blood pressure, blood glucose levels, weight, medication management, and provide foot care.

Clients are encouraged to bring a list of their medications so that the nurse can answer questions regarding their current medications.   

Referrals may be made to the podiatrist, dietitian, occupational therapist, physiotherapist, mental health services, family physician, pharmacist, and Home Care services.

Please check the Events Calendar on the home page of this website for Wellness Clinic dates and times.
