Nutrition

Here at Campus Health Services, we believe food is fuel, nourishment, and something to be enjoyed. We think Tar Heels should eat fruits, veggies, fresh meats, dairy, whole grains and nuts and seeds, because they’re nourishing and delicious. We also believe that there are no bad foods. Chips, pizza and chocolate definitely have their place in the college, because they’re fun, tasty and part of a normal lifestyle! But we also think you shouldn’t rely on those foods. It's all about finding balance.

We also believe health comes in every size. We believe eating a balanced diet and moving your body on a regular basis can make you a successful and healthy student, despite what the scale says. Trust us - there is no one perfect body weight or BMI.
