The Healthy Aggies

Healthy Aggies’ Mission:  “To build health awareness and encourage the Davis community to explore and choose healthful options. By providing sound nutrition information and administering education events, we want to inspire others to make more mindful choices and establish healthful living behaviors.”

We are Nutrition Peer Counselors and Healthy Aggie Nutrition Interns.

What do we do?   Our goal is to

a. help every student who attends UC Davis realize that everyone can be a Healthy Aggie through making some positive changes both in diet and lifestyle!
b. We promote health and wellness: this isn’t just nutrition.
We promote healthy minds AND healthy hearts. Taking care of your whole self is the most important aspect of our program.

What does being a Healthy Aggie mean?  It means living your best life, doing what you’re passionate about, and making smarter nutrition and lifestyle choices! It doesn’t  to mean eating healthy all the time. Be mindful of your nutrition goals and do your best to be consistent with them. It is often difficult to make the healthier choice, but “healthy” does not have to be correlated to “bad tasting”! There are a lot of healthier options that are just as tasty, and will contain more nutrients that your body will love you for! For example, instead of eating fried chicken, a healthy alternative would be to perhaps grill (or bake) the chicken instead using different kinds of spices and seasonings!  Follow our blog for more Healthy Aggie activities!
