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.

Prenatal Classes

Prenatal Health Services:

The Public Health Nurse in your community can help you begin your parenting journey. It is normal to have lots of  questions when you are expecting your first baby and even when  you have already had a baby. The Public Health Nurse can help you find answers to your questions about changes during your pregnancy, about labour and delivery, hospital routines, coping strategies during labour, adjusting to life with a baby, caring for your newborn, and breastfeeding. Your Public Health Nurse can also put you in touch with other community resources. Attending Prenatal Classes in your community will give you an opportunity to meet other parents. If there is not a Prenatal Class in your community the Public Health Nurse can answer your prenatal questions in the Public Health office, on the phone, or in your home. A written resource, Baby’s Best Chance is available without cost to every first time Mom in SCHR from your Public Health Nurse. Please contact your local Public Health office to find out information about Prenatal services in your area.
