Nutrition & Wellness

A healthy life is built on healthy choices. The foods we eat today affect our lives tomorrow, but how do you know what to choose?

Nutritional information, ingredients, and portion sizes are all important considerations. Below are compiled resources to help you make informed dining decisions.

Nutritional Information

We are also proud to introduce you to our award winning program, Mindful, that makes choosing the healthy choice, the easy choice. Mindful foods balance nutrition with enticing flavors to create an indulgent way to enjoy a healthy lifestyle. Look for the Mindful logo, which identifies the balanced choices on campus. 

We also provide nutritional information for the majority of the foods we serve:

  • Monson Dining Center: The Dining Center menu is now available on the 'Everyday' App and features nutritional information for each item as well as the hours the dining center is open. You can then scroll through each day's options and click on the items you'd like to see the nutritional information for.
  • Simply to Go: For Simply to Go items in the 3900 Grill and Royal Grounds, nutritional information is listed on the product's label.
  • Other: MyFitnessPal also has Sodexo-specific menu items. Download the app and search "Sodexo Campus" to get started today.

Special Dietary Concerns

With rising awareness of individual dietary needs, many special dietary foods are integrated into regular menu options. Others are available by special request of a staff-member. These items are stored separately to avoid cross-contamination with allergens.

We have gluten-freelactose-free, and vegan options to meet your dining needs.

If you have special dietary concerns, we encourage you to first contact the Office of Accessibility Resources and Services at accessibility-services@bethel.edu. They will contact you to review your dietary concerns and the options available to you in Dining Services.

Should you go "Gluten-Free"? Gluten-free dining can be confusing, especially when it comes to the latest trends. Read more (pdf) to learn some important facts about gluten-free diets.


Trans Fats and MSG

Sodexo has gone to a Zero Trans Fat (ZTF) policy effective August 2006. We are very proud to be a part of this ZTF promotion as it allows us to serve healthier food options.

Sodexo is also very proud to say we are a MSG-free company.

Cage-Free Eggs

As part of our ongoing commitment to sustainability and social responsibility on campus, we are now serving cage-free eggs in all of our locations. Sodexo views its commitment to the humane treatment of animals as highly important, just as it is for the people and the communities that it serves.
