College dining offers a variety of foods that include "home-cooked" meals, snacks, and "meals on the run" that promote a healthy lifestyle. Mealtimes can provide a social opportunity to enjoy good food, conversation, and relaxation from a busy day. A demanding class schedule, however, can make healthy and enjoyable meal times a low priority. Davidson's dining service offers nutrition counseling with a registered dietitian and licensed nutritionist.
There is no substitute for good nutrition. If you follow a special diet, experience a sudden change in appetite, or have sports nutrition needs, please contact the campus nutritionist. If you are a late riser, skip lunch, snack or consume a late dinner meal, the campus nutritionist can help you develop a healthy nutrition plan.
