What you eat can have a big impact on your physical and mental wellbeing. You can eat healthy foods on campus and at home even when you are short of time and money.

Healthy eating options at RMIT

RMIT’s campus cafeterias all have healthy and not-so-healthy alternatives. Foods that are less processed and have more lean meat, vegetables, fruit and whole grains are better for you.

The best option at City campus is the RMIT University Student Union (RUSU) Realfoods outlet. It specialises in fresh and affordable organic, vegetarian, vegan, low-fat, gluten-free, and sugar-free meals.
