Dietitians' Pick of the Month: Teal Pumpkin Project & Pork

Date: 10/1/2019 - 10/31/2019
Type: Health & Wellness

Have you seen a Teal Pumpkin in your neighborhood?  If so, join the movement and help support the Teal Pumpkin Project with Hy-Vee!  The Teal Pumpkin Project helps raise awareness of allergies and promoting inclusion of all Trick-or-Treaters throughout the Halloween Season.  It's a simple as providing non-food treats to trick-or-treaters and placing a teal pumpkin in front of your home during the Halloween Season.  For easy and safe treat ideas, contact your Hy-Vee dietitians, Amanda and Laura, or check out TEALPUMPKINPROJECT.ORG.
Pork is also a Dietitians' Pick of the Month because pork is a nutritional powerhouse!  It's a great source of protein, vitamin B6, thiamin, niacin and selenium.  For any recipe ideas, contact your Hy-Vee dietitians, Amanda and Laura, in the pharmacy.
