Good Food Matters

Here at CDS, it is our belief that students’ academic success is closely linked to good nutrition and to living a healthy lifestyle.

That’s why all meal plan holders have access to our on-site Registered Dietitian (RD). RDs are food and nutrition experts, translating the science of nutrition into practical solutions for healthy living. They are able to separate facts from fads and translate nutritional science into information you can use. A dietitian can help put you on the path to building a healthy relationship with food, balanced eating, and risk reduction for chronic disease.

College is the best time for learning how to build healthy habits to carry with you for the rest of your life. Our RD, Kelli Wood, is available to help you learn about these habits and how to separate facts from fads.
