Eat RGU has added fresher and healthier food options to the menu at RGU’s Garthdee Annex.

The idea was introduced after students called for healthier catering options on campus.

President of Communication and Democracy Michael Ife said: “For the students, the impact is great. There are new menus which can be selected right on the spot and get prepared immediately.”

The food is prepared specifically to be healthier. For example, healthier cooking methods, such as steaming, are used and the meals contain at least one portion of vegetables.

Vegetarian and vegan students will also be able to benefit from the changes, with more options now being available to them. Micheal added: “They can easily get the fresh food they require for the day right on campus.”

The area in the Garthdee Annex also serves a recreational purpose, with sofas and a pool table.
