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.

Eden Concept of Care
The Eden Concept of long term care was adopted in Sun Country Health Region with the opening of the $22 million Tatagwa View Long Term Care Centre in June of 2005.

The Eden Concept of care is a person-centred philosophy designed to help reduce the plagues of loneliness, helplessness and boredom for elderly residents and people with chronic illness.

It incorporates the use of small pets, plants and homey, attractive surroundings as part of the plan to help residents feel and be as useful as they were all their lives, and to reduce their feelings of helplessness.

The Eden Alternative’s purpose is to show others how companion animals, the opportunity to care for other living things and the variety and spontaneity that mark an enlivened environment can succeed where pills and therapies fail.

Other long term care facilities in Sun Country Health Region have adopted the concept.
