Hy-Vee debuts free weekly nutrition tours led by dietitians

BY Sandra Levy

In-store dietitians at more than 190 Hy-Vee locations in eight states will be on hand to provide free weekly health shopping tours that focus on the nutritional aspects of lowering blood pressure and cholesterol, as well as managing diabetes.

The tours will be held at noon on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays and will feature the following rotation:

• Monday (Diabetes). Dietitians will show consumers where they can find diabetes-friendly foods in every aisle, and help consumers choose carbohydrates carefully.
• Wednesday (Blood pressure): Consumers will learn which foods fit into a low-sodium diet, and see how some can even naturally lower blood pressure.
• Friday (Cholesterol): Consumers will learn which foods will lower bad cholesterol and raise good cholesterol.

“Hy-Vee’s mission is to make people’s lives easier, healthier and happier, and these free tours are a way for our customers to learn the important role food choices play in their overall health,” Hy-Vee senior vice president and chief health officer Kristin Williams said, in a press release statement. “Our company’s approach to health and wellness makes these tours a perfect complement to the wide array of services our in-store dietitians already offer.”
