The New Faces of Heart Health: Santa and Mrs. Claus

Heart disease is a major deal in my family and something that I need to watch closely. Since this cause is close to me I love seeing Santa and Mrs. Claus inviting Americans to join them from a heart healthier holiday as they raise awareness this season.

More than 25 percent of the U.S. population is living with heart disease!
 

“It saddened Santa and me to learn that not only are 80 million Americans living with heart disease, but also that the number of heart attacks increases over the holidays,” said Mrs. Claus. “Santa and I want to set a better example when it comes to nutrition, so we’re making our grocery list and checking it twice to focus on heart healthy foods and dietary habits, and we’d like to invite families across the U.S. to join; from our hearts to yours.”

In hopes of paying the inspiration forward, Mrs. Claus made a rare public appearance via video message from the North Pole, encouraging families to swap out Santa’s oatmeal raisin cookies for, well, just raisins and chocolate chip cookies for dark chocolate.

Mrs. Claus also created www.clausnutrition.com to house all of her nutrition tips and exclusive interviews with nutrition and health experts. The site will be updated throughout December to help Americans have a happy, healthy holiday season.

Love it!
