I am struggling with making healthy eating choices.

Healthy Eating Resources

Don’t have time to eat when studying? For many students it is hard to find the time to prepare healthy meals when you have so many assignments and projects due. But did you know eating healthy is linked to better study habits, improved retention, and faster information processing. Try smaller snacks throughout the day or meal prepping- it can be a real time saver and lead to overall more nutritious meal choices.
