Foodborne Illness-Cold Foods Cold-Water Bottle

Getting Safely Back into Routine!

Getting back into the school routine can be challenging, especially when the relaxed meal schedules are gone and the task of making lunches returns once again.  Health Canada estimates that 11 to 13 million Canadians suffer from foodborne illness each year, and unfortunately children are in a higher risk category to experience more serious symptoms.  Foodborne illness occurs when harmful bacteria, viruses or parasites make their way into the body through food or beverages and cause illness or disease.  To avoid unwanted “ingredients” making their way into your child’s lunch bag, here are some key reminders to parents when packing lunches. Keep Cold Foods Cold!

  • Keep cold foods cold at 4°C or below
    - Use a refrigerator if possible or use a frozen ice pack, frozen water bottle or juice box and place beside the perishable foods
    - Use an insulated lunch bag and store it away from sun light or other heat sources.  Refrigerate or freeze lunch bags the night before use.
  • If left at room temperature, perishable foods like cut fruit, vegetables, meat, chicken, seafood, eggs, mayonnaise, pastas, rice, dairy products and leftovers can grow dangerous germs
  • If perishables are left at room temperature for more than 2 hours, throw them out
 Keep Hot Foods Hot!
  • Foods like soups, chilli, stews and any leftovers must stay hot at 60°C or higher to stay safe.  If they are going to be eaten hot at lunchtime, use an insulated thermos or container
  • Preheat the insulated thermos or container by adding boiling water for a few minutes.  While you are doing this, heat the food in the microwave or stove top to 74°C/165°F.  Then empty the thermos of the boiling water and fill it with the hot food
 Keep it Clean!
  • Wash your hands with soap and warm water for at least 20 seconds before preparing your child’s lunch
  • Regularly wash your child’s insulated lunch bag or lunch box with warm soapy water
  • When surfaces, utensils and containers come in contact with raw meats make sure to wash them with warm soapy water to eliminate any germs that may be present
  • Wash fruits and vegetables before cutting up or eating, even those with rinds and skins as the surfaces may be contaminated with germs or dirt

Healthcare Systems-Specialist Doctors-Primary Care-Specialists

Many Americans see specialists for primary care: study

NEW YORK (Reuters Health) - Two in five adults in the U.S. are getting general Healthcare from specialist doctors, according to a new study showing that figure held steady for nearly a decade. Researchers found that in 1999 and 2007, approximately 59 percent of visits in the U.S. for primary care were to family physicians. The other 41 percent were to specialists, such as internists and obstetricians-gynecologists. There is evidence that in healthcare systems where primary care doctors are the first point of contact, patients see better outcomes, according to the study's lead author. ... read more..

Weight gain slower where school-food laws are strong

NEW YORK (Reuters Health) - Regulating the foods and beverages sold outside of federal meal programs at schools may help curb the child obesity epidemic, suggests a U.S. study released Monday. Researchers found that fifth graders in states with strong "competitive food laws" packed on fewer pounds than did kids in states with no such legislation. "I definitely see this as encouraging evidence that the laws can have a positive impact," said Daniel R. Taber of the University of Illinois at Chicago, who worked on the study.

Weight Loss Program-Body Fat Percentage-Weight Loss Plateau-Weight Training

HOW TO STILL LOSE POUNDS WHEN WEIGHT LOSS SUDDENLY STOPS AND FLAB IS JIGGLING: W...

HOW TO STILL LOSE POUNDS WHEN WEIGHT LOSS SUDDENLY STOPS AND FLAB IS JIGGLING: When you start a new weight loss program, especially if you have significant amount of weight to lose, the pounds often fall off rather easily the first few weeks. However as your journey progresses its common to hit a point where even though you're still exercising and dieting, the scale stops showing results. This is commonly referred to as a Weight Loss Plateau. There are a couple of different reasons why the scale isn’t budging. With a few tweaks to your routine, you’ll find that you can start losing weight again. Take a look at some of the most common reasons why you may not be losing weight:
1. YOU ARE UNDERESTIMATING THE CALORIES YOU EAT. When you start a diet, you’re probably quite strict about counting your calories. You may even use a scale or measuring cups to make sure that you are eating the right portion size. However, as time goes on, you tend to get less rigid, eyeballing portions instead of being accurate. This could be adding extra calories without you realizing it.
2. YOU ARE OVERESTIMATING THE CALORIES BURNED. If you’re following the calories burned guide on the exercise machine or relying on estimates from the internet, you may be overestimating how much you are burning when you work out. Get yourself a heart rate monitor that tracks calories and to make sure you’re working at your target heart rate. PS: How Many Calories do You Burn as per Activity http://www.indiadiets.com/Calculators1/Activitycalburn.htm
3. YOU ARE NOT EATING ENOUGH. People who are more active need more calories just to survive. If you eat too few calories, your body thinks that it’s starving and it tends to hold on to the fat. The barest minimums are 1200 calories for women and 1800 for men. People that are larger, more active, or breastfeeding may require much more. I’d venture to say that most people need much more than the 1200/1800. Calculate how many calories you should be eating http://www.indiadiets.com/Calculators1/Total_caloric_requirement.asp
. YOUR BODY IS IN A RUT. Our bodies are made to be efficient. If you’ve been doing the same exercise routine since you started a diet, your body may have adjusted to the activity, so that it’s not burning as many calories as when you first started. To remedy this, try switching to a different aerobic exercise, or increase your frequency, duration or intensity. If you’re weight training, try different exercises and be sure to increase the weights if the exercises are too easy.
5. YOU ARE LOSING FAT BUT GAINING MUSCLE. If you’re new to exercise (or getting back into it after a long layoff), you may be losing body fat but gaining muscle at the same time. I’ve had this happen to me several times. If this is the case, rejoice! That’s the holy grail of fat loss. How can you tell if you’re losing fat and gaining lean body mass? Track your body fat percentage over several weeks. You may see your weight staying the same but your body fat percentage dropping.
If you don’t think that any of these reasons apply to you, you may want to discuss your concerns with a Nutritionist. Be sure to keep a detailed log of your foods and activities so that your nutritionist can get a better idea of the whole picture.
