Hy-Vee Nutritionists offer new virtual nutrition services

As the world gets used to doing things differently, so is your Hy-Vee nutritionist, Brooke Rush! Hy-Vees’ top priority continues to be the health and safety of its employees and customers. That’s why Brooke is pleased to announce that we can now offer virtual nutrition services to all of our customers. These virtual services are available through a new telehealth platform.

Brooke Rush represents Hy-Vee as the nutritionist for healthy eating throughout the community. Brooke is a member of the Academy of Nutrition & Dietetics.

What are virtual nutrition services? Virtual nutrition services are provided through our telehealth platform, which connects Hy-Vee customers with their Hy-Vee registered nutritionist. Customers can easily stay in touch with their nutritionist to help them meet their health goals. It’s a free cloud-based technology platform that can be accessed from all of your devices: desktops, laptops, tablets, and smartphones. Customers can arrange phone or virtual video appointments. Finally, we can also organize live courses via this platform.

Are Virtual Nutrition Services Safe? Our telehealth platform is a secure way to connect with your Hy-Vee nutritionist without leaving your home! It complies with the provisions of the US Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA). This includes the privacy, security and breach notification rules as well as the administrative and physical protective measures.

Am I actually seeing a Hy-Vee nutritionist? Yes! This platform gives you the opportunity to meet Brooke Rush virtually or by phone. On this platform, your Hy-Vee nutritionist can support you individually in order to achieve your health and wellness goals. And it’s just a click away!

What services are there?

  • Schedule customized appointments (i.e., consultations on weight loss, diabetes education, heart disease, celiac disease, and more).
  • Send messages to your Hy-Vee nutritionist using chat
  • Take a free virtual food tour
  • Share photos of your groceries for feedback from your Hy-Vee nutritionist (via our virtual telemedicine app).

    Do you offer menu planning services? Yes! Healthy Habits is a menu program for customers looking for an easy-to-follow nutrition plan. The program includes 1: 1 nutritional support from our nutritionists, as well as simple recipes and a convenient shopping list that suits your menu and store layout. Before your first appointment, your Hy-Vee nutritionist will review your goals and help you find a menu that best suits your needs. Each week when you meet the nutritionist, he goes through that week’s menu highlighting products, their nutritional benefits, and their position in the store so you can develop those healthy habits and shop more safely

    Are there any costs for a Hy-Vee Nutritionist? We are currently offering a FREE Dietitian Discovery Session to get you started. In this session, you and your Hy-Vee nutritionist will determine which package is best for your health and wellness goals. We offer a variety of packages at different prices to best suit your needs and budget.
