NEW YORK, NY May 2, 2005 -- Woman's Day magazine, the women's service title that reaches one in
five American women, and The Kroger Co., one of the nation's largest retail grocery chains, have
partnered for the first time in a national program to promote Women's Health Month in May.

The program includes a 32-page polybagged health and wellness insert and advertising section in the
May 31 issue of Woman's Day magazine to be exclusively sold at all Kroger-owned stores. Woman's
Day's issues will be available in floor displays at point-of-purchase in select locations, in addition to
Woman's Day's regular checkout pockets.

"We're excited to be providing important health information to Kroger Dairy customers in this exclusive
arrangement," said Laura Klein, Woman's Day vice president and publisher. "Women's Health Month
provides the perfect opportunity to tell women that they aren't getting the recommended amount of dairy
in their diets, which is important to their overall health."

The recently revised U.S. Dietary Guidelines for Americans now recommends at least 3 servings of dairy
a day to ensure adequate consumption of important nutrients such as vitamin A, magnesium and
potassium. Science shows consuming three servings of dairy may help reduce the risk of chronic
diseases such as osteoporosis, hypertension and obesity.

Kroger Dairy launched its Fresh...for Life campaign in 2003 as a way to promote the benefits of dairy
products to consumers. Fresh...for Life runs throughout the year and promotes the nutritional value of
dairy products to customers through themed events and promotional materials.

Additionally, Kroger is a strong supporter of the 3-A-Day of Dairy nutrition education and marketing
campaign, a simple reminder for families to get three daily servings of milk, cheese or yogurt for stronger
bones and better bodies.

"Kroger is very committed to raising the awareness of dairy products' nutritional benefits to our
customers," said Alan Faust, Director - Dairy Group. "Through our Fresh...for Life campaign, we are able
to help our customers find the right products for a healthier lifestyle."
