Oklahoma State Univ. adds nutrition labeling system for grab-and-go foods

Serving size, ingredients, nutritional value, allergies and servings per package are included on the labels.

Oct. 31—Oklahoma State University has announced a new on-campus food nutrition labeling system to help students make healthier eating choices. The program provides nutritional information for grab-and-go foods that are prepared fresh each day in OSU University Dining Services kitchens.

“Between classes, jobs and outside activities, OSU students are always on the go, and their hectic schedules means that they sometimes prioritize convenience over health when it comes to food options,” said Terry Baker, director, OSU University Dining Services. “University Dining Service created the nutritional label program for prepared foods as a way to help educate students about healthy eating lifestyles by providing them the nutrition information they need to make better choices.”
