Did You Know...
With so many food options and messages in the grocery store it can be hard to make heart-healthy choices with confidence. That's why the American Heart Association created the heart-check mark. Create your grocery list by entering your item and AHA will give you the list of manufactures that make the item heart healthy. How easy is that!
Matters of The Heart
