CEDAR KNOLLS, N.J., Nov. 5, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Making smart choices when it comes to food is so important for overall health and wellbeing. About three-fourths of Americans’ eating habits are low in many of the essential food groups needed for a balanced diet1. Eggland’s Best (EB) is committed to encouraging families to make healthy eating choices in honor of November being the American Heart Association’s Eat Smart Month.

Eggland’s Best continues to be a proud national supporter of the American Heart Association’s Healthy for Good™ movement, which encourages people to take small steps every day to build lifelong healthy habits for themselves and their families. On the American Heart Association’s site, families can find helpful resources, recipes and tips created in collaboration with Eggland’s Best to make mealtime easier and more nutritious.

“With the support of Eggland’s Best, Healthy for Good is helping more families learn how to eat smart and build positive nutrition habits,” said Eduardo Sanchez, M.D., M.P.H., FAAFP, chief medical officer for prevention and chief of the Center for Health Metrics and Evaluation at the American Heart Association. “Eat Smart Month is a great time for families to commit to healthier eating.”

“At Eggland’s Best, we always want to encourage families to choose nutritious foods, which is why we are excited to continue our work with such a prestigious and health conscious organization as the American Heart Association,” said Charlie Lanktree, CEO of Eggland’s Best. “Together we will continue to help spread awareness about the importance of better family meals.”

As part of the Eggland’s Best Better Family Meals Program, EB has joined forces with Sur La Table to create a better-for-you interactive cooking series. In each class, attendees will be able to take home additional delicious and nutritious recipes created by the American Heart Association and Eggland’s Best.

Classes are taking place at Sur La Table locations nationwide through December 15. Fans are encouraged to sign up for one of the 17,000 classes across the country that will feature delicious recipes using Eggland’s Best eggs.

“With more than double the Omega-3s and vitamin B12 compared to ordinary eggs, Eggland’s Best eggs are the ideal egg when it comes to making healthier choices, this month or any month,” said Dawn Jackson Blatner, registered dietitian and nutritionist for Eggland’s Best. “For a balanced and nutritious diet, Eggland’s Best eggs are the only egg that I will recommend to my clients.”

Compared to ordinary eggs, Eggland’s Best eggs contain six times more vitamin D, 25% less saturated fat, more than double the Omega-3s, ten times more vitamin E, and more than double the vitamin B12. The superior nutrition of Eggland’s Best is due to its proprietary all-vegetarian hen feed that contains healthy grains, canola oil and a wholesome supplement of rice bran, alfalfa, sea kelp and Vitamin E. In addition, independent testing has revealed that Eggland’s Best eggs have stronger shells than ordinary eggs, which leads to less breakage and helps them stay fresher longer. Eggland’s Best’s patented method of production and verification ensures that every Eggland’s Best egg has these superior qualities.

Eggland’s Best eggs have been the recipient of more than 100 awards and honors for the product’s superior taste, nutrition, freshness and variety. For more information on Eggland’s Best eggs and delicious recipes, visit www.egglandsbest.com and follow on Instagram or Facebook.
