National Women's Health Week begins May 11

The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services observes National Women’s Health Week May 11 – 17, 2014. Take time this week to consider your own health status. Many of us routinely ponder ways to improve our health such as taking time to exercise, eating more vegetables, trying to reduce stress — and the list goes on. If you have a health goal in mind, take small steps and make sure it is realistic for your lifestyle.

When it comes to women’s health, nutrition plays an important role. Heart disease and cancer are two of the leading causes of death among women in the U.S. Consuming a healthy diet may help to reduce the risk of developing these diseases. Choosing healthy foods begins in the grocery store. Dietitians can help you understand what foods are appropriate for you.

Your Hy-Vee dietitians can teach you how to read the food label and make food product suggestions. Make an appointment for personal shopping assistance by calling your Hy-Vee dietitians at 243-6162.
