Healthy diet

Healthy diet


n recent years, many Spanish universities, including the UCLM, are working in the REUS environment (Spanish Network of Healthy Universities) to educate and train on healthy lifestyle habits. The University is an ideal setting in which to develop nutritionally healthy environments for a population, mainly made up of university students, who have the highest level of education, access to information and learning capacity, as well as specific energy and nutritional needs. Healthy dietary habits learned and consolidated during the university period are likely to be maintained for the rest of life and may be an important protective factor against risk factors related to various pathologies during adulthood.

From a nutritional point of view, the aim of this project is to create university environments to train, educate and transfer knowledge in nutritional health to the entire university community (students, administrative and service staff and teaching staff). To promote and consolidate favourable conditions that make it easier and more attractive to make nutritionally healthy food choices with the intention of improving health and quality of life.

The main purposes we set ourselves are aimed at:

  • To improve the health of the university community by promoting healthy and sustainable food that can be integrated into everyday life.
  • Involve the catering/hospitality sector working on the university campus to promote the offer of healthy, varied and affordable menus.
  • Review and control the range of products available in the vending machines on the UCLM campus.
  • Promote healthy habits and behaviours in the university population through conferences and workshops.
  • Stimulate the participation of the university community and encourage information and critical thinking on food and health issues.
