As a Hy-Vee dietitian, one of my goals is to make sure people choose healthy food options – and that they enjoy eating those foods as well!
To help people enjoy eating healthy, I am always on the lookout for new ways to incorporate healthy eating into popular interests or events for the season. In the summer, customers like getting outside and enjoying the weather with a picnic.

As a registered dietitian and picnic-goer myself, I love showing up at picnics with my family and friends bearing healthy and delicious dishes that people can enjoy without even realizing they are eating healthy.
One of the most common struggles people have while planning their menus for picnics is finding healthy dessert options. I always suggest desserts that are mainly fresh fruit-based to help minimize calories and fat, and increase vitamin and fiber intake.
