One of the first steps in monitoring your nutrition is being aware of what and how much you are consuming on a dietary level. It is often difficult to keep track of the amount of calories, fats, carbohydrates and so on that you are consuming daily. This is especially difficult for college students, as they are not preparing the meals themselves when they eat on campus. Luckily, Sodexo provides an easy way for students to monitor their intake through their website.

The Fairfield Dining Services website can be accessed at fairfield.sodexomyway.com. On the main page, there is a list of the different dining facilities Fairfield has to offer. Simply clicking on the “Main Dining Room” link will lead you to information about the different food stations offered in the dining room. When you scroll to the bottom, there is a link under “On the Menu” for that week’s menu. By clicking on a food item, it will lead you to the nutrition facts per serving. These options are not only limited to Barone, but also include the Stag Snack Bar, Einstein Bros. Bagels, Starbucks, Old World Pizza, Swipe and Go and the Dolan Café.

You may question how this website will be a useful tool for you. Going to the website before you head up to Barone will allow you to prepare your meals if you are trying to be conscious of your diet, which is especially helpful for athletes. Another great feature of this website is that if you are a user of the MyFitnessPal app, the same information posted online can be synced to your account and be calculated into your nutritional intake for the day. Fairfield Dining Services’ website provides for better accuracy in your calorie counting and can ultimately lead you to better nutrition.

The Dining Services’ website is mainly used for nutritional information for those that are trying to control their diet, but it can also be helpful to others. It simply lists each item that will be served every day of the week for breakfast, lunch and dinner. The website can be accessed easily on a mobile device. Additionally, you can find Fairfield Dining Services on social media. By following @FFLDdiningMenus on Twitter, you can see what will be served in Barone for every meal each day; you can also follow @Fairfield_Dining_Services on Instagram to keep informed of events held by Sodexo.

Fairfield provides a variety of ways to help students when it comes to their nutrition, and their website is just one of the many helpful tools students can easily access to keep track of what they are eating.
