UNI’s dining centers, the Rialto and the Piazza, as well as Prexy's restaurant in Maucker Union, were awarded the Blue Zones Restaurant Certification. This designation is given to restaurants that complete a specific set of criteria by implementing changes that create a healthy dining environment. Some of UNI’s efforts include serving healthy sides with entrees, making half portions available, and providing nutritional informational as a part of the online menus. The Blue Zones project is an initiative designed to improve community well-being and help citizens make healthy choices through permanent changes to environment, policy, and social networks. Cedar Falls currently has five restaurants with the Blue Zones designation. Congratulations to the entire staff of Dining Services for this recognition and for their continued leadership regarding healthy eating.
