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.

Safe Food Handling

Provincial regulations require that all licensed restaurants must have at least one staff member per shift who has taken a food handler course. This does not apply to community events such as Fowl Suppers.

Public Health Inspectors conduct numerous one-day courses throughout the year and in various locations in the service area.

The FoodSafe Class is an 8 hour course intended for people who regularly serve food to the public. On successful completion of the exam, participants will receive the FoodSafe Certificate which is recognized across Canada and in many places around the world. Between 200 and 300 people receive the course each year in the Sun Country Health Region.

The Food Safety For Volunteers Class is a 2.5 hour presentation intended for people who serve food at community functions (Pot Luck Suppers, Concessions at the Fair, Fundraisers, etc). Any community organization wishing to host a free presentation for their volunteers may do so by contacting your Public Health Inspector.
