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: http://tinyurl.com/nn6b95d 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.

Yellow Fever Vaccination Shortage
YELLOW FEVER VACCINATION SHORTAGE
North America is currently experiencing a shortage of the vaccine for Yellow Fever, which may extend until 2018. This shortage of vaccine may affect your travel plans.
If you have not booked your travel, please determine if Yellow Fever vaccination is required for your trip. You can access this information from the
Public Health Agency of Canada website:
Until this shortage is resolved by the manufacturer, the RQHR Travel Health Centre will be carefully managing and monitoring our current supply and implementing guidelines on use of existing vaccine supply.
NOTE: Throughout this shortage, vaccine may not be available for the following individuals:
o Anyone who has received Yellow Fever vaccine in the past is now considered protected for life, so it is important to find and keep these documents for border proof.
o Individuals travelling to an area where Yellow Fever vaccine is “Generally Not Recommended”, due to low risk. Risk of transmission of yellow fever does not necessarily occur throughout a country. This is important to consider when planning travel to countries where risk of yellow fever transmission is present (eg. Brazil).
o Individuals who are travelling to areas where there is NO risk of yellow fever transmission, but where proof of yellow fever vaccination is an “Entry Requirement”. We will provide appropriate documentation for entry purposes.
We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause.
