Choices we make in the way we live can directly impact our health and the quality of our lives. Among these choices are the foods we eat.
The College of Public Health is fortunate to be able to provide food at some of our events. As faculty and staff in an accredited school of public health, it seems obvious that we should set an example by offering healthy options when we serve food at school-sponsored events.
Many individuals already make the effort to choose healthy options when eating out. Healthy eating is not about deprivation or dieting. We simply want to make options available for those who want healthier options as well as those who have more rigorous dietary requirements.
Through these guidelines, we can demonstrate that our faculty, staff and students recognize the strong relationship between diet and health.
