Well-Being Indicator

The Well-Being Indicator® represents more than just numbers. It gives you a quick, at-a-glance visual that puts nutrition into an overall context of health.

Staple menu items, like those at the grill, are marked with an i for more information. Scan the QR code on the sign, or 
visit the menu page for a full nutrient analysis on these items.


The number at the bottom represents the calories in one serving of the meal. It’s not directly tied to the arrow’s fullness, since a high-calorie item may be packed with healthful nutrients, while an item that’s low in calories may not have healthful attributes.

Menu items featuring whole grains, fruits, vegetables, and lean protein are the highest rated on the arrow (greener), while other menu items with added sugar, saturated fat, and sodium receive lower ratings.



Most items in the café include a Well-Being Indicator® along with a calorie count. Staple items, cooked using fixed recipes, also include full nutrient analysis. The Well-Being Indicator® appears on menu signage throughout the café and on this website.


Chefs evaluate menu items against a set of criteria developed by registered dietitians, which includes nutritionally important ingredients and cooking methods. The arrow is generated by adding the fruit, vegetable, whole grain, and lean protein content of the item, then subtracting for added sugar, sodium, or saturated fats. Meals with the healthiest attributes appear with a fuller arrow, while meals with fewer healthy attributes appear with a less full arrow.


We attempt to provide nutrition information that is as complete as possible. The nutritional values are based on standard product formulations, data from our suppliers and are based on the specified portion size. Variations may occur due to the use of regional suppliers, seasonal influences, differences in product preparation at the unit level and recipe revisions. Nutrient values are rounded according to FDA Rounding Rules. This information is always subject to change and will be updated periodically.



If you need additional assistance finding the right types of foods for you, please reach out to your Emory Dining manager or chef. You can also contact our Registered Dietitian Jessica L Perry MS, RD, LD.
