Nutrition Facts Database
UMaine Dining is committed to providing menu options that allow you to choose satisfying, delicious and well-balanced meals. We believe in providing tools and information that can help you make informed decisions about your menu choices, too. As part of this effort, we are working on a database of Nutrition Facts for many of the menu items available in our dining facilities.
Looking for an easy way to make healthier dining choices on campus? Look for the DineSmart logo on menu cards! Items with that label are DineSmart approved—and a smart choice!
