Dining Experience: Health and Wellness

CulinArt encourages students to maintain a healthy lifestyle−one that incorporates wholesome, balanced food choices, regular exercise, and an overall attention to living well.

Our signature “Eat Well” menu program is comprised of recipes that incorporate whole, naturally flavorful and nutritious foods prepared with healthful cooking methods. We use spices and herbs so that you get more of what you need – necessary nutrients, fabulous flavor, and pleasing presentation.

Our “Eat Well” from-scratch creations contain:

  • Beneficial sources of fat
  • Less than 10% of calories from saturated fat and 0 artificial trans fat
  • Less than 800mg of sodium per serving
  • Less than 8g of added sugar
  • At least 3g of dietary fiber per serving

All of CulinArt’s team members complete Food Allergy and Celiac Disease training, which is reviewed and certified by Food Allergy Research and Education (FARE) through their FARECheck program. Our goal is to provide every student, faculty, and staff member an exceptional and safe dining experience. If you have an allergen concern, always feel free to contact our dining services team.

We also make it easy to choose menu items that are right for you! Look for our vegetarian, vegan, Eat Well, and locally-sourced icons on menus and printed signage.

CulinArt’s team of registered dietitians and wellness consultants presents students with exciting and engaging educational moments throughout the school year. On “Wellness Wednesdays” we focus on timely nutrition trends and themes. On “Try It Tuesdays” we not only challenge students to taste something new and different, but we let them know how and why it’s beneficial to their health. Be on the lookout for special health and wellness promotions throughout each month. Be sure to say hello to our friendly wellness experts the next time they visit Wheeler.
