Nutrition and Allergy Information
As you learn about your chosen field of study at K-State, Dining Services would like to remind you that it's also important to study up on matters that affect your health. Our registered dietitians are here to help you make smart choices about your diet. See the links at left to learn about your options.
Special Dietary Needs & Allergies
All Dining Services locations are staffed with registered and licensed dietitians who are available to assist residents following a medically necessary diet plan. The dietitian in your facility will be happy to help you plan your meals and locate the appropriate foods within the dining center to keep you healthy and safe. Also, nutrition information is available for each item featured on the daily menu pages and on most point-of-sale menu item cards to further assist you.
Students who live in our residence halls and anticipate the need to follow a medically necessary diet plan should complete their section of our allergy accommodations form and have their physician complete the bottom half. When the student receives their residence hall and dining complex assignment, they can request a meeting with a dietitian listed below for their complex and provide them with the completed allergy accommodations form.
Please recognize that the ingredients and nutritional content of food items served in the dining centers may vary. Manufacturers may change their product formulation or consistency of ingredients without our knowledge, and product availability may fluctuate. While we make every effort to identify ingredients, we cannot assure against these contingencies. It is ultimately your responsibility to determine whether to question ingredients or eat selected foods. Please note that we may not be able to accommodate all food allergies. Housing and Dining Services cannot guarantee the safety of students with life-threatening allergies.
