Helping you make smart food choices with long-term health benefits.

Diet can mean many things to many people. Sometimes it’s about counting calories. Other times, it’s about dealing with food allergies or making healthier choices.

At Rutgers University–Newark, we look at the full picture, since what you eat not only affects your health but how well you study, too. Making good dietary choices can benefit you in the classroom and for a lifetime.
