September Work/Life Line: Sodexo's Better Tomorrow Plan

09/14/2012

Contributed by Robin Davis

While eating in the Dining Hall or an on-campus food location, you’ll need to know how to make the most out of the food available by building your plate the best way you can:

·         Make half your plate fruit and vegetables;

·         Switch to skim or 1% milk;

·         Make at least half your grains whole;

·         Vary your protein food choices.

Also, eat the right amount of calories for you:

·         Enjoy your food, but eat less. Use a smaller plate or bowl;

·         When eating out, choose lower calorie menu options. Choose dishes with vegetables, fruits and whole grains.
