Welcome Back!

Welcome Back!

With a new semester underway we thought a good place to start was with a reintroduction to the Sargent Choice Nutrition Center! There is an overwhelming amount of information out there but we’re here to make it easier by providing the BU and Boston community with expert insight on all things nutrition. We are a team of seven (yes…7!) registered dietitians with years of experience and a variety of different expertise.

Over the next few weeks, we will be highlighting all of the programs, services and criteria that make Sargent Choice ‘Sargent Choice!’

Here’s a quick glimpse as to what makes Sargent Choice food the healthy choice….

  • Whole Grains instead of Refined Grains
    They’re the complete package: vitamins, minerals, fiber, and phytochemicals.
  • Lean Meats, Fish, Beans, Low-fat Dairy, and Soy
    Packed with the nutrients and protein we need with less saturated fat.
  • More Fruits and Vegetables
    The essential nutrients that give fruits and vegetables their bright colors are strongly linked to better health.
  • Heart-Healthy Oils
    We all need fat in our diet. And this is the kind that’s good for your body.
  • Herbs and Spices
    Who needs to rely on salt when Mother Nature created these antioxidant-rich gems to flavor our foods?

But the Sargent Choice Nutrition Center isn’t just all about the food, we offer nutrition education classes, seminars and counseling to help you best meet your nutrition goals.
