NUTRITIONAL COMMITTMENT

Residential Dining Services is committed to the nutritional well-being of the students and staff of the ISSTA community. Food choices and diet habits are an important part of our daily lives and are crucial for the health and well-being of all individuals.

Our responsibility is to provide nutritionally balanced food choices, along with accurate information and resources so that each individual can make the best dietary decisions for themselves on a daily basis.

NATURALLY NUTRITIOUS

The The Naturally Nutritious program at ISSTA provides nutrition information to our students as well as other guests in a number of ways.

  • Online menus including ingredient lists and allergen information for the foods served
  • Nutrition table cards giving tips to eating a well-balanced diet.
  • Menu labels that identify the nutrients in foods for all dietary needs.
  • Nutrition stations within each dining center that offer information about making healthy dietary choices.
  • Our Adjunct Registered Dietitian Nutritionist conducts nutrition programs and classes for on-campus students throughout the year.

Gluten-free items are located in the designated gluten-free zones at each dining center, along with kosher meal options, vegan, vegetarian, as well as other custom choices.

The following symbols are recognizable for students to assist in understanding food options, as well as alternative food options.

Would you like to talk to someone about your diet and food choices?

We realize that your health and well-being is directly affected by your diet every day and that sometimes you need some help to get on the right track. Therefore we provide the FREE services of a Registered Dietitian Nutritionist to students living in the residence halls throughout the academic year. Students can meet to discuss individual nutrition needs and concerns including food allergies and special diets, and get assistance with meal planning while living on-campus and eating in the dining centers.

Please contact our registered dietitican for any assistance needed in choosing healthy food options at Nutrition@MyISSTA.org. You can also stop by the health and wellness office in the Sports Complex to discuss any nutritional concerns.

Do you have a Food Allergy or Intolerance?

A support group for those students living on campus with food allergies, intolerances and Celiac Disease is available. Contact the Registered Dietitian Nutritionist to be added to the group or chat for free with the dietician about optional food items.
