FOR YOUR HEALTH

Being well and eating well means becoming aware of choices and making the right decisions to achieve a better today and a better tomorrow.  Your Sodexo dining team is committed to offering you a wide range of options for a healthy dining experience.  From recipes that include the most nutritious mix of ingredients to offering educational resources for positive lifestyle habits, healthy options are the result of a team dedicated to advancing the well-being of the entire campus community.

Another important part of our focus on health and wellness is the use of seasonal menus, featuring fresh and healthy ingredients - many of which are grown by local or regional farmers.  Every season has its own unique produce that is showcased in delicious signature dishes to highlight the distinct flavors and natural appeal of seasonal items.

For students who have special dietary and nutritional needs we have informational resources and customized menus to address your needs.  These menus meet the strictest compliance standards, without sacrificing flavor, texture or presentation.

A better tomorrow starts today

 

Well balanced foods and recipes fit criteria based on recommendations by major health organizations for reduced calories, fat, cholesterol and sodium. An entrée may not contain more than 15 grams of fat, for example.
The vegetarian label means lacto-ovo vegetarian. Vegetarian dishes may contain milk and/or eggs. Meats, meat products, seafood, fish and poultry are excluded.
Vegan contains only plant-based ingredients. Vegan excludes all meats and meat byproducts, all poultry, all fish, all seafood, all dairy, all eggs, all egg products and all honey.
Carb Friendly recipes and foods contain 20 grams of carbohydrate or less. This criteria does not abandon the healthy good carbs---fruits, vegetables and whole grains---that your body likes and needs.

The nutrition criteria are based on recommendations from many of the largest health organizations in North America. Guidelines established by the American Heart Association, American Institute for Cancer Research, National Research Council, National Cancer Institute, Canadian Scientific Review committee, American Dietetic Association and Dietary Guidelines Consortium were reviewed. These organizations have similar recommendations for fat, saturated fat, cholesterol and sodium levels in the diet. The Well Balanced criteria reflect these recommendations.
