Store Tours – Complimentary

Would you like to learn how to shop smart and begin eating healthier? A shopping tour consists of taking an aisle-by-aisle tour of the grocery store with your Waterfront Hy-Vee dietitian. The tour can be designed to meet your individual or group's specific needs. Schedule a tour today and have Natalee answer your specific questions on products and labels!

Natalee is now offering the following scheduled store tours at 12 p.m. each week:

Diabetes (Mondays) – Discover diabetes-friendly foods in every aisle – and learn how choosing your carbohydrates carefully can make a real difference.

Blood Pressure (Wednesdays) – Find foods that fit into a low sodium diet – and see how some can even naturally lower your blood pressure.

Cholesterol (Fridays) – Learn which foods will lower your bad cholesterol, raise your good cholesterol and help you enjoy improved heart health.

Biometric Screenings - $45 by appointment only
Your Hy-Vee healthcare team is here to help you identify your numbers. In less than 15 minutes, your screening will reveal the results of a full lipid (cholesterol) panel - the same as you'd get at your physician's office. You will also receive your BMI (body mass index), blood pressure, and body fat percentage. The Hy-Vee difference is that a dietitian will explain your results and provide suggestions on how to improve your numbers, if necessary. A pharmacist is also available to discuss any medication questions. Contact Natalee to schedule your biometric screening today!
