Does Warwick want to help people to make healthy meal choices?

I have a serious problem with most of the food outlets on campus. There just aren't enough healthy choices! Seriously!..Let's start with things to drink. Why is it that it's becoming more and more difficult to buy pure fruit juice on campus? As opposed to fruit drinks that are mostly sugar water? On the occassions I have been to EAT in the past 6 months, it's completely random whether or not real orange juice is on offer. I can't remember the last time I saw fruit juice in the drinks cabinet at the Arts centre cafe. With Kalaidescope out of action (until Monday? hmmm, I guess so if they work all weekend!), the only place to get real juice is in Raffles, or Costcutter! And why only orange juice?

I'm not interested in excuses like "we just cater to what the majority want…". Surely this university has a responsibility to the staff and students to make healthy choices available. And as for those insipid, over-sauced, highly salted salad selections….don't even get me started!

  1. It does seem as though all the special offers are for lard and more lard. On Westwood we do have access to salads but I find generally bringing my own salad in is the only way to get something healthy and tasty.

    Something else that is really tedious is the fact that if you want to know what ingredients are in things it takes several minutes to find out – always! It's not that the staff are unhelpful (on the contrary), but they don't have the info at the food outlets…

    ….and the "salads" in Kaleidoscope! Lard! This is why I always get the chilli.
