National Healthy Heart Campaign: Love Your Heart - Eat Your Seafood

In an effort to educate Americans about the health benefits and break down barriers about seafood, the Seafood Nutrition Partnership (SNP) conducts grassroots public health educational programs across the country.

In October 2015, SNP launched a national public health education campaign in 9 cities: Birmingham, AL; Brunswick, GA; Charleston, WV; Indianapolis, IN; Jacksonville, FL; Lexington, KY; Memphis, TN; Oklahoma City, OK; Toledo, OH. 2016 continued the national public health education campaign in the same target cities.

In each city we invite a coalition of elected officials and leaders in the business, healthcare and wellness, faith, culinary and academia communities to support the campaign and provide interactive events to educate members of the communities about the health benefits of seafood and how to include it more frequently into daily meals. In 2016, the campaign added the House Party program where 250 hosts organized home parties all held on October 1st to kick-off National Seafood Month to share SNP nutrition education materials with family, friends, and neighbors.

Our main call to action is for people to take the Healthy Heart Pledge, which is to eat seafood twice a week for at least four months, which is the amount of time needed to measure heart health improvements. SNP provides support to pledge makers with monthly eNewsletters, recipes, and coupons.

In the US, 7 out of 10 deaths are from preventable diseases. What we eat has a tremendous impact on our health. Yet, changing eating habits is one of the hardest things to do. Seafood Nutrition Partnership (SNP) is a part of the public health solution to inspire a healthier America.
