Nutrition & Special Diets

Students selecting their meals

Let’s face it, our lives revolve around food. Whether you “live to eat” or “eat to live,” the bottom line is, we all need to eat. Our bodies require certain nutrients in food to function properly and not getting enough (or getting too much) significantly affects our health and well being. Just think about the various health conditions related to our diets such as obesity, type 2 diabetes, bulimia, heart disease, anorexia and certain cancers. Without a doubt, nutrition and health go hand in hand.

Food allergies are also becoming increasingly common in the United States. Scientists estimate that approximately 12 million Americans today suffer from true food allergies. University of Redlands and the Bon Appétit team take an individualized approach to addressing the needs of those with food allergies, special diets or nutritional needs.
