Establishing a healthy relationship with food is an important part of learning. We are pleased to offer these nutrition services and resources to our residents at no cost. Our efforts include NetNutrition, an online tool for identifying common allergens and evaluating the nutritional values of dining venue foods.
NetNutrition is an online tool that can help you make smart, healthy choices in Dining and Culinary Services dining venues. Use it to:
Special icons are used to denote menu items that qualify as Healthy Choice and Vegetarian Selections. You will find a key at the bottom right corner of each NetNutrition page. Look for these icons to quickly select foods that suit your particular diet.
This symbol denotes entrees identified as containing 15 grams or less of saturated fat. Keep in mind that entrees generally contain the greatest source of fat in a meal. Combine a lower fat entrée with plenty of fruits and vegetables along with whole grain pastas and breads for a healthy low fat meal.
Foods with this symbol are identified as Vegetarian entrees. Eggs and cheese are included in this category.
To get the total nutritional content of your selected meal, click 'Meal Nutrition'.
For a breakdown of each selected menu item, click 'Item Nutrition'. After reviewing the nutrition information, you may delete one or more items by unchecking the box next to the item(s). To add additional items, click the 'Back' button.
The most common allergies are listed in the lower right corner of each meal planning page. Check all of the allergens you would like to avoid and the list of menu items appearing will only show items that do not contain these ingredients.
Please note: While you can use NetNutrition to help you manage food allergies at the dining venues, if you are prone to severe allergic reactions, we encourage you to consult our dietitian for specific ingredient questions. We will be happy to assist you at firstname.lastname@example.org.
In addition to the University Housing Dining and Culinary Services listed above, there are a variety of resources on the Internet you may find helpful. We suggest that you review these recommended sites as part of your planning for a healthy lifestyle:
All of these resources are there so you can make informed decisions about your food choices. We have tried to ensure this information is as accurate as possible but we are not able to guarantee 100% accuracy. Discrepancies may develop as products or recipes change. Portions will vary at least slightly and any additions at the condiment table for instance will affect the actual nutritional content of an item.
As with nutritional information from any source you should use the data as a guideline to help you reach an overall balanced diet during your stay with Housing. If you are concerned about your diet or nutrition we have a number of Registered Dietitians on staff that would be available to speak to you.
