The American Heart Association is committed to helping people live longer, healthier lives, and one way to do that is teaching people how to eat a healthier, more nutritious diet. Many people in the United States eat more than their recommended daily calories, sugar, and sodium and supplement that with a poor exercise routine. Nutrition Month is the perfect time to turn that around!

Healthy eating starts with ingredients. You don’t need to be a chef to create heart-healthy meals your family will love. Learning what to look for at the grocery store can go a long way toward creating nutritious, well balanced creations.

A healthy diet and lifestyle are your best weapons in the fight against heart disease. Use our guidelines to make smart choices to benefit your heart and your overall health.
