Do you obsess about your body image? Is your day constantly preoccupied thinking about the food you may or may not have eaten? Are you an athlete and are you wondering what foods would best suit your athletic and academic schedule? Have you recently been to the doctor and been told that you have high cholesterol? Have you decided to become a vegan and are wondering how to go about eating the foods you wish to eat but still manage to get all of your daily nutrients? If any of these questions pertain to you, or you have a nutritional query entirely your own, the people to talk to are right here on campus! As a UNH student most if not all of you have paid the mandatory Health Fee, which means you are eligible for Nutrition Counseling, located in the second floor UNH Health Services building. Students are able to make an appointment by calling (603) 862-3823 or setting an appointment up online.

Personally, I have friends who know hypertension runs in their family, so they make an extra effort to make correct choices when it comes to food. Where would they find out how to do so, at Health Services Nutrition Counseling. For others, they may simply wish to know whether their current consumption rate is healthy for their lifestyle. One thing I know, most, if not all of us, can agree on that being at school can be stressful. Many of us find solace in culinary experiences, however those experiences can go from being good habits to bad ones easier than we may expect. However don’t take my word for it. Visit the UNH Nutrition Counselor, Maria, for a one-on-one meeting which won’t last longer than an hour and will help you get on your way to a more knowledgeable and healthier you!
