A Message from Our Nutritionist

The key to a nutritious and enjoyable diet is to eat a variety of foods in the amounts that are right for you. To help you make smart food choices, we’ve posted the nutritional analysis of our menu items online at umd.nutrislice.com. Information is based on standard serving sizes and we recommend you fill your plate using USDA MyPlate guidelines. Whether you want to maintain your current weight, eat less fat, track sodium or sugars or cholesterol —  or simply eat well — you can make nutrition information work for you!

Dining Services at University of Maryland offers a wide range of food choices to meet every taste, craving, and dietary need–and to help you stay healthy. Please contact me at 301-314-8058 or email me at nutrition@umd.edu with any questions about our nutritious menu items.

If you have a food allergy or dietary intolerance, our nutrition staff is prepared to help! We are happy to work with you to identify and select appropriate food from our menu offerings or discover when you might need specially cooked meals.We welcome the chance to speak with you. Please fill out this form to introduce yourself and identify your allergy or intolerance. We will then get back to you as quickly as possible to make an appointment for a discussion about your options for Dining at Maryland .
