It’s no secret there’s an epidemic of childhood obesity in America. But, as every parent has experienced, it’s often difficult getting kids to eat healthy foods. One product that’s helping both situations is the new Francesco Rinaldi ToBe Healthy line of pasta sauces from LiDestri Foods.While earning certification from the American Heart Association and the Good Housekeeping Seal Of Approval, these pasta sauces have managed to keep the rich Italian flavor Francesco Rinaldi that’s made it an American household favorite for more than 30 years, ensuring kids will love it. LiDestri’s “ToBe Healthy” line is the first major brand of pasta sauces made with Omega-3 DHA,” says Edward Salzano, Executive Vice President, COO of LiDestri Foods, “which has been shown to be an essential ingredient in human health. With four delicious varieties of Francesco Rinaldi’s ToBe Healthy pasta sauces they’re helping today’s busy parents serve affordable, tasty, and heart-healthy meals to their toddlers and teenagers alike that they’ll look forward to eating.”
Numerous studies have shown that Omega-3 DHA fatty acids play a crucial role in proper brain and eye development in children and are a natural preventative for cancer and cardiovascular diseases. The earlier a child begins eating healthier, the better chances of sustaining wellbeing throughout their adult years. And since the Omega-3 DHA blended into ToBe Healthy pasta sauces is derived from a cultivated and sustainable vegetarian source, there’s absolutely no fishy taste that could turn kids off.
Adding 64mg of DHA Omega-3 per serving is just one of the benefits children receive from Francesco Rinaldi’s new ToBe Healthy pasta sauces. Since there’s no sugar added, each serving has just five grams of sugar and 60 calories. Just as important for growing minds and bodies, ToBe Healthy is cholesterol-free, has no saturated fat, features reduced sodium levels, and is a good source of Vitamin A. All this, plus each cup represents a full serving of vegetables, something every parent can appreciate.
With all we’ve learned about early childhood development, and so many young Americans struggling to maintain proper weight levels, Francesco Rinaldi’s ToBe Healthy pasta sauces provide one of the few choices that combine solid nutrition with unbeatable eating pleasure. So now Francesco Rinaldi isn’t only the better-tasting pasta sauce… it’s also better for you, too.
