Food for the Brain

Raising awareness of the importance of optimum nutrition in mental health.

All of the dining halls at Royal Holloway have achieved Food for the Brain Catering Accreditation. This accreditation recognises our high standards of nutritional excellence, our commitment to providing nutritionally balanced food, and the culture we have developed around nutrition awareness. Where you see the Food for the Brain logo next to our dishes, you can be sure you will be choosing meals with the nutrition needed for optimum mental health and well-being. 

On this page, you can find ideas and recipes for helping you develop long term healthy eating habits and ensure you make the most of seasonal produce.
