Nutrition Picture

The Wellness Program works hard to make eating healthy easy for college students. Every month new recipe cards are posted with yummy, easy to make dishes that appeal to Emory college students. For example, some past recipes were strawberry banana smoothies, guacamole, protein pancakes, and green juice. Additionally, the Wellness Program puts on nutrition challenges that encourage participants to follow healthy eating behaviors with the end goal of maintaining these new habits even after the challenge is completed. To further encourage students during the nutrition challenges, the Wellness Program offers participants a chance to win prizes such as personal blenders, meal prepping lunch boxes, and gift cards from health food stores. The Wellness Program also hosts nutrition workshops with registered dieticians. Past workshops included, Healthy Eating on a Budget, How to Avoid the Freshman 15, and What to Eat Pre and Post Workout.
