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.

Assets - 40 Developmental Assets

The 40 Developmental Assets are experiences and opportunities that young people need in order to grow up healthy, caring and responsible.

The more assets a child/youth has, the more likely they are to thrive and the less likely they are to engage in risk taking behaviors.

Assets have power for all young people, regardless of their gender, economic status, family, or race/ethnicity.

The Developmental Asset framework allows all people to become asset builders, and is derived from many years of research conducted by Search Institute.

Sun Country Health Region supports its communities in asset building.
