Eat Well Berkeley Mission: To identify and promote healthier food options throughout the UC Berkeley campus and campus community.
In order to promote health among UC Berkeley students, staff, faculty and guests, Health*Matters Wellness Program and the UC Berkeley Nutrition and Physical Activity Workgroup, in partnership with the City of Berkeley, strives to ensure access to healthy food and beverage choices on and around campus. We have developed nutrition guidelines for catering, meetings and events, vending, and restaurants to ensure healthy choices are included in food venues on campus. The guidelines are designed in support of the Dietary Guidelines for Americans with a desire to provide food and beverage menu options that offer:
More fruits and vegetables
|Lean sources of protein|
|Healthy fats, no trans fats and less added fat|
|Vegan and vegetarian options|
|Smaller or half-portion sizes|
|Whole and fresh ingredients, prepared with less sodium and sugar|
|Water or non-sweetened beverages|
|Emphasis on sustainable foods to help achieve campus sustainable food service goals|
