Healthy Huskies

Healthy Huskies (Coming Fall 2015)

We are excited to introduce a very exciting program for Fall 2015. Healthy Huskies will allow you to get web based nutritional information about the foods you eat or would like to eat in the residential dining centers.

Healthy Huskies is a partnership with the School of Family, Consumer, and Nutrition Science, which will allow you to identify food combinations that when eaten together will provide a balanced caloric intake each day while still giving you the option of eating the foods you really like.  The Healthy Huskies program will be based on 2000 calories per day diet.

Food Allergies & Intolerances 

If you have any food allergies, food intolerances or require special menu accommodations, we will be happy to accommodate them. There is an initial step that we ask you to complete to put your accommodation in place. Please see below:

  1.    Have your physician fax the medical documentation for your accommodation to NIU’s Health Services Office at 815-753-9599. They will review your request and, if approved, it will be sent on to our Disability Resource Office where it will be noted that you have been approved for an accommodation.  
  2.    When Residential Dining is notified that you have been approved for accommodation, one of our nutrition staff will assist you in menu selection, ordering any necessary special food items and will follow-up with you throughout the semester and school year to ensure that your dietary needs are being met.
