Eating Healthy on Campus

Food is the fuel your body needs to function. Chances are you're pretty careful about what you put into your car's gas tank. Shouldn't you care at least as much about what you eat? Today there's a wider variety of foods to choose from than ever before. Making smart choices is a critical part of any total health plan. When you combine a well-balanced diet with moderate exercise, it can help you feel better and keep off unwanted pounds, while avoiding the revolving door of dieting. 

SMU Dining Services believes that good nutrition is essential to good health. To help assist you in furnishing your body with the essentials for a healthy diet, we have several tools to offer. First, every day we offer vegetarian items at all locations. In addition, we have healthy initiative signs posted at all locations on items sold that are essential to smart eating. If you are interested in the nutritional information that we serve every day in the Residence Halls, please go back to the home page and click on today's menu in the upper left hand corner. Finally, we offer assistance from a certified nutritionist. If you have special dietary needs or concerns, please contact us and we will get you in touch with Health Services or our nutritionist. For quick reference and education on healthy eating, we have nutritional web site links to help you.
