Balanced U is a holistic approach to food and nutrition. It’s based on one concept - we eat food. To help our customers understand how food plays into health, Balanced U consists of three components: Icons, Monthly Subjects and Stealth Health.
Icons: are used to easily identify better options: balanced options (limited in nutrients that can be detrimental to health), vegetarian options, vegan options, made without gluten options, and sustainable food choices. Paying attention to these icons will help you eat healthy. Eating healthy should not focus on what a food doesn’t have, instead it should focus on what it does have.
*In order for food to be labeled with the 'Balanced' icon
or to be served at the Balanced U station, foods must fit this criterion:
|Per Serving:||Entrée||Appetizer, Side, Or Dessert||Dressings & Sauces|
This makes it easy to find healthy food options - just look for the 'Balanced' icon or simply eat at the Balanced U stations!
Monthly Subjects: are focused on providing an opportunity to highlight and educate on the functional foods that fit the specific monthly subject.
