If you eat on campus and are looking for a tool to help visualize your nutritional intake every day, you’re in luck.
Dining Services just announced that it’s implementing a new online tool called “My Nutrition Calculator,” which is still in the early stages of its life and should be finished within the next year or so.
This calculator allows anyone to look up their meal, side, drink or dessert and calculate its nutritional value from any of the onsite locations at Florida Tech, which include The Sub Cafe, The Rathskeller, Panther Dining Hall, Crane Creek Pizza and Black Kat Kafe.
Tom Stewart, director of Dining Services, said it’s a new tool that’s there for people that want to use utilize it.
“It’ll help the people who are interested,” Stewart said. “The information will be there finally, and we’re pretty happy about that.”
Stewart said that after everything within the system is finalized and the Nutrition Calculator is up and running in the next year, they’ll output the data into a phone app.
The tool is already live and can be found at fit.mynutritioncalculator.net or by going to Food Services homepage and clicking on “My Nutrition Calculator” on the left navigation panel.
In other health conscious areas at PDH, Chef Jon Skoviera also features a different vegan dish for lunch and dinner every day of the week for four weeks to be more inclusive of different diets.
