UB Wellness Education Services and Campus Dining & Shops is coming together to provide students with an easy way to choose sensible meals that are all around 500 calories or less. Welcome to the 500 kcal club! We have compiled three “combo meals” that will meet the 500 kcal limit, based on our most popular food items. Each combo is representative of a balanced meal, including your choice of a fruit, milk, and salad.
We understand the difficulties students face in making food choices, especially under multiple time and budget constraints. Demanding schedules often make it even harder to eat healthier. Skipping meals or constantly eating on-the-go can lead to choosing meals that are less nutritious but high in calories. The 500 kcal club helps you keep these combo meals in mind, in addition to showing you simple food swaps that can make a difference – both nutritionally and in calorie content. Feel free to check out the nutrition information of all the foods we serve on http://www.myubcard.com/dining/nutrition and see what other foods can make it into the club!
