"American Heart Month Welchs 100 Grape Juice"

My grandfather had heart disease. In fact, during a European vacation while he was in his 70s, he suffered a massive heart attack and underwent open heart surgery. This came as quite a shock, actually, because he had no idea that he had severe coronary artery disease. He did have high blood pressure, but his heart disease was a silent — and, in this case, almost deadly — predator. So when American Heart Month rolls around, it has a special meaning for me.

Welch’s 100% Grape Juice is helping celebrate American Heart Month in a variety of wonderfully heart-healthy ways. For starters, they’re offering visitors a coupon for Welch’s 100% Grape Juice. While you’re there, why not check out their quiz, family activities, their downloadable heart-healthy shopping list…and a sweepstakes for an X-Box 360 with Kinect Prize Pack! Woo hoo!

    I scored mostly all C’s so not so good! I try to have a vegetable at dinner but admit I don’t eat many fruits. And, I have stopped buying canned fruit and vegetables altogether!

    Im surprised …
    MOSTLY C’s: You’re one heart-healthy bunch—nice work! Eating a nutritious diet and living an active lifestyle can go a long way to supporting heart health. But remember that while diet and exercise affect your health, so do your genes. That’s why it’s important to understand your family’s heart health history.

    According to the American Heart Association, more than 90% of us fail to consistently eat a heart-healthy diet. I did not realize the percentage was so high

  5. Jennifer Reed says

    I scored with “You’re one heart-healthy bunch—nice work!” but although I am concerned with cooking and eating healthy I need to do much better with exercise for my family as well as myself.

    MOSTLY B’s: Your family is definitely moving in the right direction. They follow a number of heart-healthy habits—but there’s always room for improvement. For one, we all have hearts, so it’s important for the whole family to eat well. And, a nutritious meal begins with a good plan, which includes making a shopping list that you can stick to.

  8. Mary Cloud says

    MOSTLY A’s: It’s time to get your heart-healthy juices flowing! It may seem daunting, but small things, like taking a walk together on the weekends or adding another serving of fruit to the day, can really add up!
