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.

Foot Care

What Can Cause Foot Problems

  • Poorly fitting shoes, slippers or boots.
  • Shoes with high narrow heels, slippery soles, "sticky" soles or poor support.
  • Some conditions, such as diabetes and poor circulation, can cause loss of feeling in your feet.
  • Poor posture.
  • Untreated foot problems like calluses, bunions, corns, untrimmed toenails, or ingrown toenails.
  • Swollen feet.

What you can do

  • Wear proper fitting supportive shoes with low broad heels.
  • Make sure your footwear is in good repair.
  • Talk with a foot specialist about calluses, bunions, corns, or ingrown toenails. Corn plasters are not recommended for people with diabetes, heart or blood vessel disease.
  • If your shoes are loose and you can't afford a new pair, buy insoles or wear extra socks.
  • DO NOT wear socks on linoleum or tiled flooring.
  • Buy slippers that fit properly and are enclosed around the heels.
  • Wear loose socks or stockings. Knee highs can cut off your circulation in your legs and numb your feet.
  • If your feet are swollen, put them up when sitting or lying down.
  • See a professional foot-care specialist every 4-5 weeks for toenail cutting if you can't do it yourself.
