Summer can be a time of Little Debbie snacks and lemonade (at least mine were as a kid) but Hy-Vee wants to teach you and your kids about healthy options this summer.

But it's important to teach kids about healthy foods. Here are a few things they have coming up that you can get involved in.

Hy-Vee KidsFit Summer Bash

The Hy-Vee KidsFit Summer Bash will be this Saturday, June 4th from 9:00 a.m.-11:00 a.m. at select Hy-Vees (none of the ones in the QC, but you can go by the one in Milan, at 210 10th Avenue West. Here's the link to the Hy-Vees participating). Kids can get a Hy-Vee KidsFit Summer Fun Box that has summer activities, healthy snacks, and swag items.

Out of the Box, Into The Kitchen: A Virtual Cooking Camp

In July, a cooking camp for kids 5-12 will be held virtually with Hy-Vee dieticians. Kids will learn how to combine ingredients for a flavorful, nutritious dish. It's $20 and you can register here. The camps will be July 11, 18, and 25.

Kids In The Hy-Vee Virtual Kitchen Class

Each month, Hy-Vee dieticians will host a free cooking class for kids. There are classes for Little Chefs (ages 3-7) and Junior Chefs (ages 8+).

Kids Food Group Virtual Store Tour

Also free is the virtual nutrition store tour by Hy-Vee dieticians. This is designed to help kids learn the basic food groups with interactive trivia, games, and movement breaks. It's for kids ages 4+. You can register here.

Virtual Freezer Meal Workshops

Join your kid for this one as Hy-Vee dieticians teach families how to prep food ahead of time and save money in the process. These cost $10 and you can register here.

Virtual On-Demand All Pork Freezer Meal Workshop

In June, Hy-Vee dieticians will highlight ways to make 3 dishes: Italian Pork Tenderloin, Sweet & Spicy Pork Chops and Instant Pot BBQ Pork Ribs. You can register for the workshop here.

Here's to a healthy summer!
