Worried about Meal and Snack Options in College? Trellus Health Has Your Back!

College cafeterias usually have a plethora of options. Consider talking to someone in the nutrition department about ingredients they use so you can make the most informed decisions. You may even consider doing this before school starts so you can better plan out your meals. There are more dietary options for people today than ever before due to an increase in health products to fit all food preferences and restrictions such as intolerances, allergies, and religious preferences. Have some healthy, IBD friendly snacks accessible to you in a pinch.

We have a short list below, but you can reach out to our Resilience team for more options.

Also keep in mind that with socialization usually comes food and drinks. If you find that you are in situations where you don’t feel so good about eating or drinking what is in front of you, consider your options carefully. The struggle to hang out with friends while having dietary restrictions is a real one shared by many!
