K to A: School Nutrition Mentoring Project of the Northern Healthy Communities Partnership

Nutrition in Schools and Daycares

For the third year in a row, nutrition workers from across northern Saskatchewan came together to learn new recipes, work on menu planning, discuss how to support each other, and learn about sources of added sugar in regular diets. 14 participants came from three schools and seven daycares.



Participants discussed program ideas with others who do the same kind of work as them, i.e., how to get kids to try new recipes, how to reduce sugar in baking, and how to adjust recipes to accommodate allergies.

Support youth and community well-being through the collaborative action of community partners working together. Through evidence, tools and resources, SAYCW supports stakeholders to turn the knowledge gained through the youth health survey into health promoting action.

This report provides a brief review of the scientific literature on COVID-19 and its effects on youth health, with particular emphasis on mental health.  SAYCW shares relevant data from the pre-pandemic, 2019 SAYCW survey – these findings show how stressors and unhealthy behaviours that have been worsened by the pandemic (e.g., worry, connection with others, screen time, etc.) had impacted Saskatchewan youths’ health and well-being prior to the pandemic. Suggested health promotion actions to help mitigate the effects of COVID-19 and improve youth health and well-being are also shared.
