MHealthy Dining Guidelines
Beginning in the fall of 2011, new MHealthy guidelines will be implemented to assist the University’s dining community in identifying healthier food choices at eateries across campus.
The MHealthy guidelines were developed by registered dietitians at the University of Michigan and reflect these key recommendations:
- Avoid “empty calories” and oversized portions;
- Eat more fruits and vegetables;
- Watch out for foods that are high in sodium or added sugar;
- Choose low-fat or fat-free dairy options.
To identify MHealthy options in the residential dining halls, look for the MHealthy logo on the nutrition cards placed near each serving area. MHealthy options are also listed on our University Housing online menus and in MyNutrition.
More information on the NEW MHealthy Guidelines will be coming soon. Learn more!
If you have a craving for sweets, have a small portion and then an apple right afterwards. The taste of the apple will reduce cravings for second helpings and further snacking.

A great post-workout snack is an apple with peanut butter for carbohydrates and protein. Try crunchy or smooth!
