The Power Of The Grape
Heart-Healthy Living for the Whole Family
A healthy lifestyle, strong heart and fit body and mind are key to a vibrant and energetic life at any age. The good news is that you can give your children a head start by instilling good heart-healthy habits, such as eating right and engaging in daily physical activity.
And remember, savour and enjoy every bite. Gathering around the table as a family to eat a delicious meal can be a great way to take a break from everyone's hectic schedules and spend some quality time together.
One Heart-Healthy Eating Pattern
Experts agree that healthy eating patterns should include the right amount of calories and health-promoting nutrients, without overdoing saturated fat, salt, and added sugar. One way to do this is to follow a Mediterranean-style of eating.
There is no one food or ingredient in this eating pattern that holds the key to good health. Instead it's a combination of simple, wholesome, nutrient-rich foods, flavoured with herbs and spices.
