Although my son is not yet in college, I spoke with the dining service representative at my daughter's college last year about
situations like my son's. She assured me they have many people on specific diets (i.e. gluten-free, lactose-free, diabetic). Although my son will not likely be going to that same university, I felt assured we can make the proper connections wherever he ends up. It seems nearly all universities use these dining services these days, so yes, talk with a representative.
Since junk food rules in college, the biggest challenge may be keeping healthy snacks on hand for your daughter for the times when everyone is having a study break with mass quantities of sugary snacks or high-carb snacks--they are not good in excess, either. I am betting this responsibility (keeping his snacks and honey stock-piled) will fall in my lap for my son, so I'm hoping he'll choose a college no more than a couple hours away so I can help him out. I'll let you know how that goes! lol! I would also HOPE to keep him stocked with home made yogurt... One mom here said her daughter made her own while at college.
I fear there's no chance of that here...
