Welch's Grape Juice Review & Giveaway CLOSED!!

Ever since I was little, one name comes to mind when I think of grape juice, Welch's. Welch's grape juice is a child hood favorite of mine and is also a favorite of my kids as well. I love how Welch's Grape Juice is not only very tasty but is also good for you and your family in so many ways. There are also so many things you can do with Welch's Grape Juice other than just drink it! I was given a coupon, courtesy of Welch's so I could try out some of these yummy recipes they gave me! I will also be giving one of my lucky readers a coupon to get their own bottle of Welch's Grape Juice to try some of these recipes as well!

WELCH’S FAMILY VINE TOOL & YOUR HEART HEALTH HISTORY
• Diet and exercise affect your heart but so do your genes. That’s why it’s important to
understand your family’s heart health history.
• With this in mind, Welch’s has developed a tool, the Welch’s Family Vine Tool, which
enables families to track and record their personal health histories and share the results
among relatives. Since your heart health is often impacted by other medical and nutrition
factors, it’s important to assess your overall health with your doctor. For more visit,
welchsfamilyvinetool.com.

ADDITIONAL “FOOD FOR THOUGHT”
• Fruits, vegetables, and their juices, including Concord grapes and Concord grape juice, have
essential vitamins, minerals and beneficial plant nutrients, like polyphenols.
• Did you know that many of the polyphenols in Concord grapes are the same as those found in
red wine? Growing research suggests that certain polyphenols may play a role in supporting
heart health.
• Research also suggests that drinking Concord grape juice may benefit the heart by helping to
maintain healthy, clear, and flexible arteries to promote healthy blood flow. The Grape Science
Center is a valuable resource to learn about the growing Concord grape research in areas
like heart health, cognitive health, immune system health and more. For more information
on the science behind the Concord grape’s health benefits, visit the Grape Science Center at
grapescience.com.

As part of its second annual Harvest Grants program, Welch’s Foods Inc. announced the 100 elementary schools nationwide who will receive gardening grants.  The program is a partnership between Welch’s®, Scholastic Parent & Child® magazine and the National Gardening Association and provides children the opportunity to learn the importance of incorporating fruits and vegetables into their diet and gain a heightened awareness of what they eat and where it comes from by planting, tending, and eventually harvesting their own fruits and vegetables at school.
