Welch's Celebrates American Heart Month!


How HEART SMART is your family's shopping cart? February is American Heart Month and Welch's would like to remind you that keeping your families heart healthy begins at the grocery store. This is where you can pick items for that heart healthy diet and with Welch's 100% Grape Juice made with concord grapes you can give them something to drink that is not just delicious, but oh so good for their hearts too.


According to a recent Porter Novelli Styles survey of more than 4,000 Americans, conducted on behalf of Welch’s:

·         There is a gap between knowing the heart-health benefits of common foods and actually putting them into the shopping cart.
·         2/3 of Americans recognize that red wine, salmon, oatmeal or olive oil are heart-healthy foods.  However, a fraction of these same consumers buy these foods on a monthly basis.
Many consumers think heart-healthy foods won’t taste good or they are simply too time consuming or costly to cook.  However, the good news is that it’s easy to “heart your cart” with foods that are simple to prepare, convenient, affordable and delicious!
For example, as a complement to fresh produce, 100% grape juice made with Concord grapes makes it easy to add a boost of delicious purple fruit to your family’s diet.  Each 4-ounce glass counts as 1 serving (1/2 cup) of fruit – with no added sugar.  And, more than a decade’s worth of research suggests that thanks to the Concord grape, Welch’s 100% Grape Juice can help support a healthy heart.
