MHealthy Dining and Vending Program

It’s now easier for the U-M community to choose foods that support basic good nutrition. MHealthy and its university partners have created a new labeling system to help you make more informed food choices at campus vending machines, at select eateries and through select catering providers.

The new labeling system recognizes that many foods are not simply “good” or “bad.” Instead, it represents the spectrum of foods’ healthfulness.

The more slices filled, the more nutrient dense the food!
