The iconic Heart-Check mark has been on food packages and in the grocery store since 1995. Today one out of three shoppers say they use the Heart-Check mark to find healthier options in the grocery store.

Now, the Heart-Check mark is also helping health-conscious Americans find heart-healthy recipes they can make at home. Certified recipes have been evaluated by one of the most trusted health organizations to meet specific nutritional requirements.

The American Heart Association Heart-Check Recipe Certification Program employs an annual per-recipe fee-based assessment to cover program operating expenses. No donations are used to support the program.

The American Heart Association Heart-Check Food Certification Program is designed to help consumers make informed choices about the foods they purchase. The nutrition requirements are food-based and intended for healthy people over age two. The Heart-Check program is not a dietary solution for any particular condition or disease. People with medical conditions or dietary restrictions should follow the advice of their healthcare professionals.
