The Dietitian serves as a consultant for menu planning and recipe development, working with the gym and health center to achieve overall student wellness.

If you've ever wondered if something contained nuts, was low in calories, or safe for a vegan to eat, you'll be happy to know that Haverford and Bryn Mawr Dining Services now have nutritional info available for all of their entrees. From calories to allergies, we've got you covered.
