Healthy Eating on Campus


   For soon-to-be college freshmen the adventure of dining on campus is one that often generates concern and excitement. The fears of the “Freshman 15” can cause incoming students to worry about how they will be able to eat and avoid that weight. At the same time students fear the dreaded “mystery meat” or the all-you-can-eat options. Well good news, Campus Dining is quite different than it used to be.

Dining on campus now means choosing from ethnic cuisine, vegetarian options, healthier choices, foods for specific allergies, grab and go options and sometimes all day dining. If you’d like to get a jump on what your meals might look like on campus take some time to visit the dining services page of your university.

Dining at Washington University in St Louis provides many options including online menus that display what is served each day and the nutrition information. View the menus at -

Menus for the fall semester will appear within the next two weeks.

  1. You know, speaking of nutrition, it's sad to see how simple some of the solutions to malnutrition are in principle, but also how unwilling to help some corporations are, simply in the interests of monetary gain. Here's a great example of what I'm talking about right here (, so if you're interested, it's definitely some food for thought.

    Other than that, I'd also like to thank you for such an informative post on your part: it was a pleasure to read and helped me learn something today :)
