Schedule an Appointment

Nutrition coaching is free to all currently enrolled Ohio State students and is intended to help students explore ways to optimize their nutrition needs through a nutrition assessment, education and goal setting.

1. Handouts

Complete the following handouts and bring these to your appointment (virtual or in-person). These can be found in the right side bar at the top of the page.

  • The Food Log is used to identify any dietary imbalances and explore ways to optimize your nutrition needs. (For questions or concerns with this activity, contact nutrition@osu.edu). 
  • The Food Preferences (optional) is used for creating meal and snack ideas and is especially helpful if you have dietary limits (e.g. food allergies, "picky" eater) or dietary preferences (e.g. plant-based). 

2. Schedule a Session

Both virtual and in-person appointments are available. The first session is 45 minutes and includes a nutrition assessment, education and goal setting. Follow-up appointments are also available in 45-minute sessions for those who have completed a first session. 

When you schedule an appointment, select from the following two options:

  • General Health if you want help with topics like establishing a healthy diet, mindful/intuitive eating, food allergies or intolerances, event training, health conditions (i.e. Hypothyroidism, acid reflux), etc.
  • Disordered Eating if you eat less than 1,200 calories per day, skip meals, avoid eating when hungry, over-exercise, binge or purge, use laxatives or diet pills to lose weight, etc.

Schedule a nutrition appointment

Important Considerations:

  • If you need to reschedule a first-time appointment, contact nutrition@osu.edu to avoid completing the intake form again.
  • If you have difficulty finding a day and time for your appointment, email nutrition@osu.edu.
  • Full-time faculty/staff, including those who are taking classes, are encouraged to use their Ohio State health insurance to meet with a dietitian.
  • Appointments are available for students enrolled at Ohio State's regional campuses (Marion, Mansfield, Newark, Lima and Wooster) and while away from Columbus campus for other circumstances (e.g., semester abroad, summer at home, internship out of state).
