Making healthy choices for our families can be hard at times. There are so many treats in the stores that are appealing to kids of all ages. So many of them are not good for us and don’t promote a healthy lifestyle.
My family members have been big supporters of the American Heart Association for years. When my Father was diagnosed with heart problems, we all did what we could to help him out by learning as much as we could about his disease.
My Mother volunteered in many American Heart Association events. My daughter even rode in parades and helped to raise money for further studies.
Did you know nearly 20 years of research says that Welch’s 100% grape juice made with Concord grapes helps support a healthy heart? After finding out this information, I knew that Welch’s 100% Grape Juice would be in my home all of the time.
Using Welch’s 100% Grape Juice is perfect for my family since there is no added sugar. Drinking Welch’s 100% Grape Juice and adding to recipes is one way to get our daily fruits in. I can feel good about using Welch’s 100% Grape Juice and I like knowing that I am helping support my families hearts.
Over the years, I have come up with some great recipes that use Welch’s 100% Grape Juice. One of my families favorites is grape lemonade sweetened with honey instead of sugar.
