Nutrition & Health Information From BYU Dining Services

Snack Smarter

With the hustle and bustle of daily life, we find ourselves grabbing the most convenient food items, even if those aren’t the best for our diet. When rushing between classes, sometimes the only options are the vending machines. However, just because you don’t have time for a healthy meal doesn’t mean you can’t make healthy choices when it comes to snacking. BYU Vending has made this choice simpler with their Snack Smarter labels that have the apple on wheels logo like the images pictured here:
