Smartphone App Connects Campus with Healthy Meal Choices
Busy students, faculty, and staff on the go can now quickly and easily check out the campus dining menus, find nutrition information, provide feedback, and more – all with a click of their smartphone.
ARAMARK, a leader in providing dining and facilities management services to hundreds of higher education institutions across North America, has launched its CampusDish Mobile App to assist over 1.7 million students, faculty, and staff in making healthy, informed meal selections.
To help students, faculty, and staff find nutrition information quickly and easily, the new CampusDish app is currently available for free download in the iPhone, iPad, and Android app stores. The app makes it easy for students to search for meals meeting specific nutrition requirements, further promoting healthy eating habits. For instance, if you are looking for a meal with less than 500 calories or less than 10 grams of fat, you can input the information through the app and quickly view which menu items are being served and where they are available.
In addition to posting the nutrition content for the mneu items being offered, this new app allows students to submit feedback about the dining program, offer suggestions, ask questions, as well as share the app with friends through a simple click.
