Sodexo Dining Services at UNA
A Better Tomorrow Starts Today
For Your Health
Providing you with healthy options is something your Sodexo team proudly does every day. Sodexo helps guests on our campuses select delicious, nutritious and satisfying meals, snacks and desserts by highlighting well-balanced menu choices and providing nutritional information and tips to help guests make choices that fit their needs.
An important part of our focus on health and wellness is the use of seasonal menus, featuring fresh and healthy ingredients - many of which are grown by local or regional farmers. Every season has its own unique produce that is showcased in delicious signature dishes to highlight the distinct flavors and natural appeal of seasonal items. Enjoy healthy choices on your campus throughout the year and as part of the promotions and events.To provide you with healthy choices that have reduced sugar, salt and fats, our chefs and supply team work hard to source the best ingredients for the menus on your campus. One example of how we recently did this is by offering a new turkey burger. The new turkey burger is lower in sodium, fat and calories than the previous option. Learn more about this great new choice: Diners bowled over by healthier turkey burger.
What is a balanced choice?
A “balanced” plate means eating from more than one food group. It’s about making 50% of your plate plant-based with fruits and vegetables, 25% with lean protein and another 25% with healthy grains. Look in your campus dining room for the daily “For Your Health” highlighted option or consider building your own plate using your favorites from the many choices available to you.
