This fall semester dining initiated Wellness Wednesdays, a time to provide new and heathy alternatives every Wednesday during lunch. Each dining hall has their own Wellness Wednesday feature, and each Wellness Wednesday is based off of Dining’s Menus of Change Principles.
Menus of Change of was introduced by dining in order to advance healthier and more sustainable life-long food choices by connecting different insights from academic programs as well as dining services. The Menus of Change features 24 different principles, and these 24 principles will be highlighted on 24 different Wednesdays throughout this academic year.
Examples of Menus of Change Principles that will be implemented this year include:
