Eating Well in the Dining Halls

UNH Dining can help you make good eating decisions that will satisfy your urges while keeping you on track nutritionally.

With a new Menus of Change initiative, UNH Dining is one of 37 university programs to join and is an active member on a number of work groups driving this iniative nationwide.

A key player in Healthy UNH’s commitment to make UNH the healthiest campus in the nation by 2020, UNH Dining has eliminated virtually all trans fats, introduced all natural and organic foods, and reduced our use of sodium. Our Guiding Stars nutritional program rates food based on nutritional value according to the recommendations of the FDA and the USDA. Choosing those foods is simple; just look for the stars. Foods high in fiber, vitamins, minerals and whole grains receive one to three stars for good, better, best nutritional content, with three stars denoting the best. Trans fat, saturated fats, cholesterol, added sugar and sodium impact the ratings.   

Have dietary restrictions? We can accommodate gluten-free diets, multiple food allergies and intolerances. Just make an appointment with our registered dietitian and she will help get your nutritional needs met.
