Allergies and Special Dietary Needs

On the right side of the page, select the items you would like to exclude from the menus. For example, choose “Milk” to filter out any recipe that contains milk.

Be sure to read the nutrition facts label and ask serving staff if you have any questions about specific recipes.

Bear Bites is a tool that can help you navigate the dining rooms when you have specific dietary needs, but if you have had severe allergic reactions in the past, we encourage you to speak with a manager. Our Registered Dietitian, Matthew Doyle, is also available to help you any time. Contact him at matthew.doyle@unco.edu or 970-351-1961.

Calculating Nutrients and Calories

Once you are in the menu for the location you want, you can create a meal and see the nutrients and calories for everything you've chosen.

  • Check each menu item you plan to eat, including the number of servings (items will appear in the upper right corner of the page under My Meal)
  • Select “Add Items” and keep adding until your meal is complete
  • Click on “Meal Nutrition” to see the nutritional information for your meal

Note: You can also just hover over a food item and see the nutritional information.

Using the Mobile App

You can also use the new Bear Bites menus on the UNC Mobile App.
