Healthy Eating Tips for College Students
Know What a Balanced Diet Is
A balanced diet includes the right amounts of proteins, lipids, and carbohydrates.
Add a Fruit or Vegetable to Every Meal
Only about half of the daily recommended portions of fruits and vegetables are actually consumed by the average American.
Work in Some Extra Calcium Sources
Blood clotting, neuron and muscle function, strong bones, and healthy teeth all depend on calcium.
Drink More Water
Water is cheap and easily accessible, so bring a reusable bottle to school and fill it up frequently.
Try New Things at the Dining Hall
Because there is so much food available, college dining halls are both a blessing and a curse.
Stock Safe and Healthy Dorm Room Snacks
It's convenient to have a snack available when you get back to your apartment or hostel.
