As a busy college student, you want to eat well. With nutritious on-campus meals, cooking workshops and more, we’re here to help you feel your best.
Rather than judging a single food as “healthy” or “unhealthy”, zoom out to consider what one tends to eat over time. This means all foods can fit, pleasurable foods that may not have many nutrients but we enjoy them (o.k.!) as well as plenty of whole foods that have lots of nutrition (natural color=nutrients). See MyPlate for more guidance.
Meet with UB’s registered dietitian to assess your current lifestyle and get individual nutrition counseling. We offer guidance on nutrition-related medical concerns, as well as provide support regarding eating on campus, body image, saving money on food and more. We promote a non-diet approach to eating thatencourages self-compassion, diverse foods and body acceptance. We seek to encourage eating well and enjoying an active lifestyle.
Call Health Promotion, (716) 645-2837 ext. 1, to schedule a nutrition appointment.
Before your appointment, in your patient portal, click on Appointments. Then click on “Complete Questionnaire”. Complete the form as you feel comfortable. Form completed or not, please keep your scheduled appointment—we want to see you!
If you or someone you know has an eating disorder — including anorexia or bulimia — we have an Eating Disorders Team that can offer the counseling, medical care and nutritional support you need.
At UB, you can discover new foods, take a nutrition class, learn how to cook and join a community supported agriculture (CSA) program.
