Supermarket Tours

Join your Hy-Vee dietitian for an aisle-by-aisle tour. You will discover new food choices, learn about label reading and discuss the basics of nutrition and healthy eating. Tours can focus on health concerns such as diabetes, weight management and heart health, or other topics such as improving your shopping list, quick meal ideas and budget eating. Please e-mail Katie to schedule a tour, or watch for announcements on upcoming group tours.

Community & Worksite Wellness Services

Several health and wellness programs are available for your business or organization. Your group can come to the store, or our health and wellness team can come to you. Services include health fairs, cooking demonstrations, weight management programs, nutrition presentations, health screenings and immunization clinics. Please e-mail Katie to discuss program ideas and fee information.

Cooking Classes

Cooking classes are a fun and interactive way to not only learn about healthier foods, but to get to try them in new, delicious recipes! Hy-Vee hosts public classes in-store but Katie can also lead private classes at Hy-Vee or off-site! Katie has cooking classes for both children and adults so be sure to check out our calendar to see when the next class is! Please e-mail Katie to discuss class ideas and fee information.

Begin Group Program

Begin is a 10-week healthy lifestyle program that emphasizes eating for good health, being physically active, and maintaining a healthy weight.

Packages include nutrition education, weekly meetings, personal goal setting, and support with a registered dietitian. Please e-mail Katie to discuss program guidelines and fee information.
