A: A Christmas stocking is big enough for a themed gift but small enough to make filling it quick, easy and fun. Help Santa out this year by taking your Hy-Vee dietitian’s suggestions and stuff their stockings with good taste and good health:
Breakfast in a stocking
Stop by your Hy-Vee HealthMarket and find the following: Horizon shelf-stable organic milk box, Erin Baker’s breakfast cookie or KIND nut and fruit bar, Just Fruit Munchies single-serve packs and fresh fruit, such as a Honeycrisp apple or an easy-to-peel clementine. Don’t forget a new toothbrush and toothpaste tied together with a bow.
Love your neighbor
Simply tie together a package of beautiful gourmet pasta, Hy-Vee Select classic olive oil and a jar of World Classics Tomato Basil pasta sauce as a way to remember your neighbor at the holiday season. Add an invitation to bring the items over to your house for dinner in the New Year — and this simple, thoughtful gift encourages both good health and friendship.
For the gourmet foodie
A quality cheese slicer from your Hy-Vee delicatessen and gourmet cheese department allows you to slice perfectly thin slices of cheese for maximum flavor and extends the number of servings you can slice from a wedge of cheese.
