By Haley Adel, UC Davis Nutrition Peer Counselor
Even though we cannot finish this Spring Quarter together on the Davis campus, the Healthy Aggies remain dedicated to providing you with nutrition content and advice! We have broadened our outreach by creating more virtual content. We would like to take a moment to share what new programs we have, and what original programs we are continuing.
Through this pandemic, we have been encouraged to adapt to these new circumstances. Our Healthy Aggies have stepped up to the plate by delivering a great variety of Youtube videos. The content of these range from providing step-by-step instructions for delicious recipes to sharing nutrition facts on subjects such as fat. If you are interested, click here to check out one of the videos!
Additionally, our Instagram account @ucdhealthyaggies has been busy with a new feature. Every weekday a Nutrition Peer Counselor shares a fun nutrition fact over the IG story. From vitamin D to water, questions about nutrition that you may have always had are being answered. There’s also a poll with each story to test your nutrition knowledge. See how much you know about nutrition by answering the poll each day; check in at 5pm when the answer is revealed!
Along with the new programs, we are still continuing old ones such as the nutrition consultations. As a bonus they are now provided at NO COST! If you want to get answers to nutrition questions or analyze what you’re eating, the Peer Counselors are here for you. If you are interested in a free consultation, please contact the UC Davis Living Well center at email@example.com to schedule your appointment. Here is the brief questionnaire to complete for the appointment. We also have our monthly newsletter still up and running like usual! Subscribe by sharing your email here.
Finally, the Peer Counselors are currently finishing webinars on fun topics such as Ultra-Processed Foods and a Balanced Plate. These will be available on the Campus Recreation Youtube soon for your viewing!
We hope you are all doing well and safe, and that the last few weeks of this schoolyear are enjoyable. We look forward to you checking out any of these resources that you find interesting! Let us know how you participate
