How do I use the Better Nutrition Heart Healthy Menu?

Need gluten or dairy-free options? Feel free to make those adjustments but make sure your client chooses unsweetened versions.

What about heart healthy supplements?
If your client can’t consume certain nutrients most days from food, then he/she could benefit from a quality supplement. Visit the Better Nutrition Supplement Store to see our approved choices.
