Insist on more fruits and vegetables from the Cannon Commons to stay healthy!

We all know that the dreaded "Freshman 15" is a real thing. But it is not just an issue of not being able to fit into your jeans, it's a serious health concern for students just beginning their life as an independent adult. According to the Dietary Guidelines for Americans, 87% of Americans are not eating enough vegetables, and that lack is most apparent in ages 19-30. For the hundreds of BYU freshman students living at Helaman Halls, the Commons at the Cannon Center becomes their main source of prepared meals. Data collection of Cannon Commons meal options has shown the dishes served to be extremely lacking in fruits and vegetables while having excessive amounts of meat. The fruit/salad bar often goes untouched as students are just coming in to eat a quick, prepared dish and get back to homework. If we can convince the Senior Manager of BYU Dining that this is an important health issue that we, the student body, care about, we can achieve healthy change at the Cannon Commons. Let's speak up to get more fruits and vegetables offered as part of the meals we eat every day.
