UWO Dietitian Services
Our onsite Registered Dietitian is here to support you in all your nutrition or wellness-related goals! Some of our services offered include:
- One-on-one nutrition counseling
- Sports performance consultations
- Allergen and specialty diet support
- BeWell nutrition education programs
- Wellness presentations
- Cooking demos
- Healthy recipe sampling
The dietitian also works closely with our campus chefs to assist with menu planning and allergen, specialty diet management. They also oversee the stocking and management of our allergen-friendly room located in Blackhawk Commons.
At UWO, we have an online menu database that allows students to get nutrition and allergen-information for each day’s offerings right at their fingertips, allowing them to easily navigate menu options to fit their needs! The database also helps to identify our BeWell items- items that make the healthy choice the easy choice. Each BeWell item must be trans-fat free, use minimally processed ingredients, and be mindful of added sodium and portion size. In addition, they must also meet 3 out of 5 of the following criteria:
- Feature plant-based ingredients
- Include healthy fat
- Feature lean or plant-based protein
- Include limited added sugar
- Be a high fiber or probiotic food
