Nutrition

WMU Dining Services offers a variety of healthy dining options to support students throughout their university experience. Healthy options are located at all Western Michigan University dining locations, which include dining centers and campus cafés. Nutrient information can be found for all food items by utilizing the nutrition book or by viewing a hard copy of the nutrition book in each dining center. Most campus café products that are made in-house are individually labeled with nutrition information.
