Women and babies are coming to the fore with Hy-Vee’s July programming from its team of registered dietitians. The retailer’s dietitians have planned a month of virtual programming based on the theme “Bump to Babe,” with cooking classes, store tours and live Q&As offering tips and information about shopping and preparing food to support fertility, prenatal and postnatal nutrition, and first foods for infants.
The programming includes two types of virtual store tours. “Prenatal/Postnatal Nutrition” tours will highlight healthy eating suggestions for pregnant shoppers, sharing the best foods to help grow a healthy baby and choose the best foods for after giving birth. The “Fuel Your Fertility” tours will outline the basics of nutrition to boost fertility. The 45-minute virtual tours will include the basics of eating for everyday wellness and offer a guide to shopping at Hy-Vee to support that goal. They also are offered in Spanish.
Also on offer will be virtual classes for parents looking to cook the first meals for their infants. The “Baby’s First Foods” classes will demonstrate how to introduce babies to new foods, baby-led weaning versus purees and simple meal-prep recipes. The cooking classes are offered for a $10 registration fee.
