Positive Plates Campaign Inspires Georgia Southern Students

STATESBORO, Ga. – Low-fat frozen dinners and sugar-free cereals are healthy food options, but not the tastiest. This March, Eagle Dining Services encourages Eagles to enjoy delicious, nutritious meals in the Posi- tive Plates campaign.

Positive Plates is a month-long awareness campaign to promote healthy eating in the Residential Dining facilities. Dining Commons and Lakeside will feature special activities for students to enjoy such as the Dish of the Day, Healthy Eagle Hearts, Perfect Parfaits, and the Positive Plates Luncheon.

Dish of the Day will offer daily culinary classics in the dining facilities. Students will be encouraged to try the featured dish of the day in Lakeside on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays and in the Dining Commons on Tuesdays and Thursdays.

Healthy Eagle Hearts challenges Eagles to maintain a healthy heart by eating red fruits and red vegeta- bles. Exclusively held on Tuesdays, March 4, March 11, and March 25 in the Dining Commons from 2:00 pm to 4:00 pm. Eagles that attend and participate in eating featured red foods will receive a unique kitchen tool.

Perfect Parfaits is a week long activity starting Monday, March 3 through Friday, March 7 in Lakeside and Dining Commons from 9:30 am – 11:00 am. Students get to start their day the right way by building their own parfait from the freshest ingredients. Choose from strawberries, blueberries, bananas and combine with delicious yogurts to make the perfect parfait.

Positive Plates Luncheon will end the month of healthy initiatives on an energetic note on Thursday, March 27, 2014 starting at 11:00 am in the Dining Commons. Selected students will get the opportunity to at- tend a vibrant lunch with special guest, Brittany Parham. Over good food and exclusive giveaways, students will get the opportunity to learn about the benefits of good nutrition and a balanced diet.

Positive Plates campaign offers a fresh perspective on nutritious meals provided by the Residential Din- ing facilities and encourages Eagles to eat their way to health and happiness.
