Heart health is an important issue in our family. My husband’s parents and all of his grandparents have had major heart concerns, some of them sadly passing from heart attack at far too young an age. My father-in-law is still recovering from his heart major attack only a few years ago. Needless to say this makes my husband’s heart health a top concern as well as the general risk of heart disease for women. I never feel like we’ve done enough to prevent that risk for both of us.

In support of the American Heart Association’s Go Red For Women movment, Quaker is inviting women to start their day with a hot heart-healthy breakfast video for fuel to take on their every day adventures. This Valentine’s Day, Top Chef Season 5 Fan Favorite Fabio Viviani used his charm, humor and culinary expertise to send women a message about the importance of taking care of their hearts.
