College students can eat healthy: More on Campus Life’s Healthy Cook-Off

As we told you here yesterday, WBAY, Channel 2 came to campus for a story on the Healthy Cook-Off Challenge from the Campus Life Healthy Choices Task Force. Reporter Kristyn Allen spoke with Residence Life’s Melissa Klinkhammer and RA Caitlin Baker for this story about making good nutrition more accessible for college students — even when a dorm microwave is the sole means available for cooking. We linked to a short preview story in yesterday’s Log, and now we have the full report. WBAY also made the cook-off challenge its Facebook question of the day, and folks are sharing quick and healthful recipes there (just search WBAY TV).
