Some research studies show that our food choices can affect our mental wellness and how we respond to stress and everyday life. The connection is also clear between good nutrition and good physical health.
That’s why nutrition is part of our commitment to delivering the very best treatment for our residents. We’re one of the few residential treatment facilities with a fulltime registered dietitian on staff. Paula Livernois, R.D., oversees every aspect of our dietary program, making sure the food we serve meets the individual dietary needs of each resident. She also provides nutrition education for residents to help them achieve and maintain good health.
Highlights of BRC’s dietary program include:
We use every aspect of the dining experience to help kids grow and develop during their time with us. Gathering around a table for a meal with dorm mates helps residents learn social skills and table manners. Residents who have earned the privilege to work on campus can be assigned to help out in the cafeteria by cleaning tables. All residents learn the importance of sanitation and cleaning up after themselves.
