Nutrition & Health
Part of serving the needs of campus is diversifying the nutritional profiles of our menus to accommodate a variety of needs and preferences. Campus Dining provides the following guide to help better inform our guests of our dining options.
Look for the H to find items prepared using healthy techniques. They contain more nutrients and vitamins and fewer calories and fat. Include these items as part of a balanced diet.
Look for the V to find vegetarian choices of entrees and soups. These items do not contain meat or fish. Vegetarian diets are one opportunity to benefit in both good health and social responsibility. Vegetables require much less natural resources to grow than animal products.
Look for the VGN symbol to find items made without animal products. For a list of vegan choices, please visit our Special Diets page.
Gluten Friendly Offerings
Due to changes by the FDA regarding gluten-free labeling, Campus Dining does not identify food items as gluten-free. We do however offer menu items that don’t contain wheat, rye, or barley as ingredients. To avoid gluten, keep an eye out for our wheat icon.
This icon indicates items/recipes that contain wheat, and/or rye, barley, or non-certified gluten-free oats.
CAUTION, due to the nature of our self-service lines and the production environment in our kitchens, items may have come in contact with gluten through the regular production processes. If gluten must be strictly avoided, please contact our dietitian at firstname.lastname@example.org to discuss your options.
When dining in North or South Dining Hall, you'll find symbols noting nutrition and allergen information for each item. Below are the symbol key and a sample line card.
