    There are many different things that parents can do to promote healthy eating in their children's lives. Family meals are very beneficial to the health and wellness of a child (Gavin, 2009). Children find this daily habit comforting and studies have shown that they have higher chance of eating grains, vegetables, and fruits, and less likely to eat unhealthy foods (Gavin, 2009). Parents can "include low fat foods, milk, vegetables, eaten with family away from TV" (Santock, 2007). Adults can set a good example for their children by simply following their own rules, and eating healthy themselves (Gavin, 2009). Parents should not force their child to finish everything on their plate, as this teaches them to ignore their feelings of fullness (Gavin, 2009).

    How She is Remembered Today
    Mary Seacole was an important contributor to the nursing profession; many things help to perpetuate her memory. Various hospitals and wards have been named after Mary to commemorate her (Mary Seacole Center, 2008). She is also remembered through The Mary Seacole Center for Nursing Practice and The Mary Seacole Reseach Center (Mary Seacole Center, 2008). A statue commemorating Mary is set to be erected by 2011 which will face Big Ben in London (BBC News, 2009) and a blue plaque has been placed at her last place of residence in London, England to honor her memory (English Heritage, 2007).

    Tragically, Mary was forgotten for nearly a century despite her efforts and achievements, which were as equally remarkable as those of the famous Florence Nightingale (Seaton, 2002). Some have suggested that her disappearance from history was due to prejudices held against her, but her determination, valor and contribution to the nursing profession were too noteworthy to keep her in the shadows (Seaton, 2002). In Mary’s autobiography, The Wonderful Adventures of Mrs. Seacole in Many Lands (1857), she explains that she desired to nurse soldiers in the Crimea because she had the qualifications to serve soldiers in need. Her noble motivation is what fuelled her determination despite her rejection from the British army (Seaton, 2002). Today, Mary has been immortalized through organizations dedicated to her memory, statues, commemorative ceremonies, plaques and paintings. Mary Seacole was a self trained nurse who opened the door for ethnic minorities in nursing and is recognized today as one of the greatest contributors to nursing history.

    It is truly amazing that such a strong and courageous woman was able to put aside wrongs done against her and see through racism in order to make a difference without much appreciation or recognition. The Mary Seacole Centre for Nursing Practice was established in 1998 with its main goal being “to enable the integration of a multi-ethnic philosophy into the process of nursing and midwifery recruitment, education, practice, management and research” (Mary Seacole Centre for Nursing Practice, 2008, para. 4). The Mary Seacole Development and Leadership Awardwas also established in memory of Mary in order to honor nurses who show the same leadership and determination as Mary (Department of Health UK, 2009).
