BU Offers Free Nutrition Counseling

College is a transitional time when students begin to establish many lifelong habits, and the nutritionists at BU’s Sargent Choice Nutrition Center believe healthy eating habits should be among them. To that end, the center offers every BU student a free one-on-one nutrition counseling session. Students who are at nutritional risk for any reason are eligible for further sessions. To schedule an appointment, students can fill out the center’s online request form or call 617-353-2721.

The Sargent Choice Nutrition Center is staffed by five full-time registered dietitians who provide a variety of services to BU students, including group discussions for students with similar nutrition interests and needs; one-credit nutrition classes, such as Healthy Cooking on a Budget; and the Sargent Choice Healthy Dining Program, a collaboration with BU Dining Services to promote healthy food options on campus.
