LA GRANDE, Ore. – EOU Dining/ARAMARK is launching Healthy for Life™, a comprehensive and integrated approach to health and wellness that features healthy food choices, nutrition education and wellness programs that work together to support healthier lifestyles.
“Students are thinking differently about their menu choices and are actively seeking information about how nutrition impacts their health,” said Monir Desouky, Food Service director for EOU Dining/ARAMARK. “Healthy for Life™ helps students gain a better understanding of food, and empowers them to make the choices that will ultimately help them live healthier lives.”
Healthy for Life™ includes menus featuring lower calorie, lower fat, whole grain and vegetarian or vegan choices, as well as a variety of tools, programs and events designed to make it easy for students to select balanced food choices and learn how they can establish and maintain life-long healthy eating habits.
From a smartphone app and menu labeling to a dining hall Wellness Center, some of the program elements include:
On more than 30 college and university campuses where the program was piloted, ARAMARK found that Healthy for Life™ helped students gain a better understanding of food and empowered them to make balanced food choices. Feedback from participants at pilot locations indicated that it works because it is a lifestyle – not a diet – program.
ARAMARK Healthy for Life™ builds on proprietary research as well as global health trends that focus on wellness, good nutrition and healthy lifestyles. More than 75 percent of students surveyed by ARAMARK Higher Education* in the past year indicated they are striving to be careful about what they eat and want to know how to make better nutrition and lifestyle choices.
