@Welchs #Sharewhatsgood Photo Contest #Sponsored #MC

Sponsored PostDisclaimer: I participated in a campaign on behalf of Mom Central Consulting for Welch’s. I received product samples to facilitate my review, and a promotional item as a thank you for participating.


Welch’s knows that special moments can happen in an instant, and they believe in the magic of “kitchen table” moments. Because of Welch’s families have enjoyed those special moments together for generations. That’s why they have recently launched a new movement called “Share What’s Good.” It’s all about those special moments that happen every day with your family, your friends, or even someone you’ve just met, and it doesn’t matter if you’re at home or out and about.

Right now, when you visit www.Sharewhatsgood.com, you’ll find tons of great content. There are fun family ideas and even lots of yummy recipes. Plus, you can share photos of your every-day moments and take a look at others who are doing the same.

And, as part of the Share what’s good campaign, Welch’s has also launched the “Share Your Moments” Photo Contest when you can upload a favorite family moment for a chance to win $5,000! WOW! (Entries accepted from 9/16 to 10/25.) There may be only one grand prize, but everyone that enters will get something special. Simply uploading a picture will get you a $1.50 coupon for Welch’s 100% Grape Juice. OR, if you share the news, you’ll get a $2.00 coupon! For more details and to enter, visit Sharewhatsgood.com today.

Around here, “Family Moments” happen all the time. It doesn’t matter if I’m spending time with just one child, or with all seven of them and my husband. A family moment is just a moment where we can be together, enjoying whatever it is we might be doing. From snuggling on the couch watching “Peter Pan” for the 8 millionth time, to sitting around the kitchen table for a family meal, every moment I have with my family is special.

Some of my favorite family moments, though, happen around our table. I love hearing about the kids’ day at school, or hearing stories of the crazy (and sometimes super kind) customers my husband had to deal with that day. Lately, though, I have really been enjoying lunch time with my two youngest boys. You never know what is going to come out of their mouths! In fact, just today, we sat down for lunch and Parker told me, “Mom, if I eat all of my food, it will turn me into a Ninja! Then I can be the strongest person in our house. Even stronger than Daddy!” I love it! He has such an imagination, and he makes my heart smile every time he thinks up something new.

And then there’s Gage. While Gage doesn’t talk much at all yet, he does have his own way of communicating. Like when I told him to take a big bite of his peanut butter and jelly roll up so I could take a picture. He took a big bite, alright, and he had to show me just how BIG he could open up his mouth!

Crazy kid!

In our house, Welch’s is a staple, and with products like their 100% grape juice and their Natural jelly, I can feel good about serving them to my kids. (And myself!)

About the party:

This Mother’s Day, Welch’s wants to help all Moms learn about how they can help their families live a heart healthy lifestyle. Whether it is eating right, exercising, or spending a day at the spa – you need to take care of yourself. We know mom is working to keep her family healthy, but it’s not always easy as it can be to get children to eat a variety of heart healthy foods, in particular, colorful fruits and vegetables. In fact, even adults fall short on getting enough vibrantly colored, blue and purple fruits and vegetables, and a diet rich in these ensures families may get the broadest range of vitamins, minerals and beneficial plant nutrients (like polyphenols).

One easy and delicious way to add more purple to your family’s diet is to drink 4-oz. of grape juice, which offers a full serving (1/2 cup) of fruit and no added sugar. To add to that, more than a decade’s worth of research suggests that drinking Concord grape juice may benefit the heart by helping to maintain healthy and flexible arteries to promote healthy blood flow.

Check-out these great resources to help your family to stay heart healthy:

  1. Welch’s Family Vine Tool, allows you to trace your family’s heart health history
  2. GrapeScience.com is a destination for the growing science behind the Concord grape’s health benefits
  3. Welch’s also has the best grape- and grape-juice inspired recipes at the Welch’s Recipe Box

So, join me – and MomCentral – for the #WelchsGrape Twitter Party this Tuesday, from 3 – 4pm ET.
