Health and nutrition are vitally linked. How and what you eat affects your energy level, your academic performance, and your long-term and short-term health. A positive relationship with food and your body is essential for your physical and mental well-being.

Cornell students list nutrition among the top health topics on their minds. Sports nutrition, the freshman fifteen, body image, vegetarianism, keeping weight in balance, eating problems—are a few of the key areas of interest. This page links you with more information about nutrition at Cornell and on the web. It connects you with the Cornell Healthy Eating Program, which provides individual nutrition consultation at Gannett as well as programs and information for the community.
