About the party:
This Mother’s Day, Welch’s wants to help all Moms learn about how they can help their families live a heart healthy lifestyle. Whether it is eating right, exercising, or spending a day at the spa – you need to take care of yourself. We know you are working to keep her family healthy, but it’s not always easy as it can be to get children to eat a variety of heart healthy foods, in particular, colorful fruits and vegetables. In fact, even adults fall short on getting enough vibrantly colored, blue and purple fruits and vegetables, and a diet rich in these ensures families may get the broadest range of vitamins, minerals, and beneficial plant nutrients (like polyphenols).
One easy and delicious way to add more purple to your family’s diet is to drink 4-oz. of grape juice, which offers a full serving (1/2 cup) of fruit and no added sugar. To add to that, more than a decade’s worth of research suggests that drinking Concord grape juice may benefit the heart by helping to maintain healthy and flexible arteries to promote healthy blood flow.
