The Student Nutrition Advocacy Collaborative (SNAC) is a group of junior, senior, and graduate nutrition students dedicated to increasing nutrition awareness and teaching important nutrition skills.
Meet one-on-one with a Boynton Health student peer educator for a nutrition check-up—together explore your current nutritional habits through a review of your 24-hour food record, completion of a body composition analysis test, and together establish and review your nutrition goals.
Your nutrition check-up will last 45 minutes. Prior to your nutrition check-up, you will need to print and fill out a 24-Hour Food Record Form.
Nutrition check-ups are sponsored by SNAC and are free to student services fee paying students. All nutrition check-ups will be held in the SNAC office, Room N-211 at Boynton Health, 410 St. S.E., Minneapolis MN 55455.
