N231A Introduction to Nutrition N231B Nutrition and Health Vanderbilt School of Nursing Jamie Pope, MS, RD EAT MORE!!! Tips for the college student on eating more fruits, vegetables, and whole grains to boost nutrient quality, fiber content, and disease-fighting potential of your daily diet MORE FRUITS…. (at least 2 servings per day) Keep fruit accessible as a snack in locations where you have few other choices available, i.e. in your dorm room, your car or in your back pack. Opt for fruit as a snack, to eat as you walk to and from class or the library, as a late night treat, or as part of your breakfast each day. Go for variety and color. Don’t just eat bananas or apples, include citrus fruits like oranges or tangerines plus pears, kiwi fruit, grapes, melon, berries, and more! Snack on bite size fruit like grapes or dried fruit (raisins, apricots, apples and the like). Keep fruit in your room in easy view like in a bowl or basket in your dorm room or on the shelf in the refrigerator rather than out of sight in the fruit bin. Don’t buy too much fruit at one time so that it stays fresh and appealing. Keep less perishable fruit on hand—canned fruit in juice or light syrup, frozen fruit, and dried fruit. Freeze fruit for a cool, refreshing, sweet treat (bananas wrapped tightly in foil, grapes, berries). Choose juice as a beverage at meals when you’re short on fruits and vegetables.
