Nutrition Can Be Tasty in Galletas

Share via

Nutrition awareness comes in many forms. At UCLA, the Student Nutrition Awareness Committee (SNAC) recently emphasized the need by staging a recipe rivalry among dining halls on campus.

Nutritious snack recipes submitted by inter-hall finalists for the grand prize of $100 last week were judged by student government representatives, food service managers, cooks and SNAC members. The winning snack by a landslide was submitted by Kim Lede of Sproul Hall for Galletas--chock-full of oats, cereal, raisins, carob chips, walnuts and coconut. And they are great. GALLETAS
