"I Eat Right Because... when I feed my body the right nutrients, I feel more confident and ready to take on my day," says Dawn Jackson Blatner, a nationally recognized Registered Dietitian Nutritionist. "I fuel my body with prunes because besides tasting great, they have no added sugar, they keep me feeling full and with potassium, vitamin K and magnesium, prunes are great for bone health."
Sunsweet Amaz!n Prunes are, "The Feel Good Fruit," and contribute to a healthy diet. Research shows that eating 5 to 6 prunes a day can help maintain bone mineral density in women. In support of bone health and in tandem with the social media campaign, for every photo shared using #IEatRightBecause, Sunsweet will donate $1 to the National Osteoporosis Foundation, an organization dedicated to promoting strong bones and preventing osteoporosis.
