GREEN BAY (WLUK) -- March is Nutrition Month and the dining services at UW-Green Bay are making sure the students and staff are eating healthy throughout the academic year. From feeding the student athletes, to coming up with healthy ideas for every meal of the day, there are challenges that this staff takes on every day.

Justin Steinbrinck spent some time on campus this morning learning about some of the healthy options that are available, sitting down for breakfast with the men's soccer team, and making some nutritious recipes with the campus executive chef for your next get-together with family and friends.

The main dining facility, called the "Leona Cloud Commons" is open to not just students and staff, but also the general public. It is an "all-you-care-to-eat" for one price, ranging between $6 - $9 per meal.
