What is a Wellness Meal?

A wellness meal is a delicious, balanced meal that meets a specific nutrient AND food profile. Students will be able to choose a Wellness Meal in any residence hall at breakfast, lunch, and/or dinner, Monday through Friday and at brunch and/or dinner on Saturday/Sunday. These meals will include whole grains, fruits, vegetables, low fat dairy, and lean protein. Choosing these meals, even occasionally, will add up to a healthier you!
