Spring is just around the corner, on March 20th to be exact! It’s that time of the year again, to lose those extra pounds we gained from the winter holidays. The upcoming month of March has earned the official title of National Nutrition Month. It is a campaign, by the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics, that focuses attention on the importance of making informed food choices and developing sound eating and physical activity habits. In light of this, there will be a few events held on our campus to give students the opportunity to reflect on their health-related lifestyle choices. Kathryn Szklany, RD, in collaboration with the dining centers, has recently been working on adding more healthy menu options to the dining facilities. One of the new health food options that we will be sampling next month will include the ever-popular chia seed pudding. It is expected that by next fall the pudding, as well as some other new dishes, will be officially added to the menus, to include more options for vegan and gluten-free foods.
In honor of National Nutrition Month you will find us in the Marano Campus Center or one of our many dining centers. Please feel free to stop by and try something new and play Spin to Win for fun prizes!
