Hy-Vee works to keep you well

Hy-Vee is helping people to get healthy with the start of the new year.

The Hy-Vee Wellness Bus will be in the Kirksville area on January 18th from 9:00am to 3:00pm.

The wellness bus will allow visitors to test their cholesterol, triglycerides, and blood glucose levels for $45.

Shoppers will also have the opportunity to attend the 'Gluten-Free Gala' which will be held January 17th and 18th from 9:00am to 3:00pm. The gala will allow those with celiac disease to sample different foods and treats that the store offers, before spending money on them. Coupons and nutrition advice from a registered dietitian will also be on hand at the event.

"If you're somebody with celiac disease or an intolerance to gluten, this is a great opportunity for you to come out, try the new products, some that we've had for awhile but maybe you've never wanted to spend the money to taste is a good way to get the flavor of each product," said Andrea Shelly, a Hy-Vee Registered Dietitian.

The 'Gluten-Free Gala' will be held January 17th and 18th from 9:00am - 3:00pm and the wellness bus will be in town January 18th at Hy-Vee.
