"As a busy wife, mother and entrepreneur, I make it a point each day to eat healthy snacks and fit in simple exercises everywhere from grocery store to the car," said Denise Austin. "We want to teach consumers that, by adding just a few simple steps each day, it is easy to achieve well-balanced fitness and nutritional plans that can fit into even the busiest of schedules."


With Denise's health and fitness expertise in creating unique, inspirational ways to engage in a healthy lifestyle accompanied by the company's line of great tasting and good for you products, consumers will be provided with all the necessary tools to develop daily healthy habits. Denise's unique recipe ideas and fitness tips will be showcased throughout the tour as well as online at http://www.smuckers.com/simplesteps. Some of helpful tips include:

 

Simple Steps to a Better You:

  • Create delicious, filling and low calorie mid-morning snacks by placing
    1 teaspoon of Smucker's(R) sugar-free Red Raspberry Preserves into a
    serving of fat-free cottage cheese or plain non-fat yogurt.
  • Squeeze in your tummy while you're shopping at the grocery store. Just
    five seconds of squeezing your abs equals one sit-up!
  • Stay motivated by scheduling regular workouts such as walks with family
    and friends. Once your 'fitness date' is recorded in your daily
    planner you are committed and are more likely to follow through.

"We are thrilled to be taking our program on the road, and to be partnering with Denise Austin to provide consumers with simple health and fitness tips to enhance their daily lives," said Maribeth Badertscher, Director, Corporate Communications, The J.M. Smucker Company. "Smucker's provides consumers with a variety of options to help make smarter food choices that are also quick and convenient for a variety of lifestyles."

Smucker's Fruit Spreads

During the tour, Smucker's will offer samples and recipe tips for their sugar free, low sugar and natural peanut butter varieties. Smucker's sugar-free fruit spreads allow consumers to enjoy the fresh fruit taste of Smucker's in a product that contains 80 percent fewer calories than regular fruit spreads and zero grams of sugar per serving. Smucker's Low Sugar contains no artificial sweeteners and 50 percent less sugar, calories and carbohydrates than regular fruit spreads. Smucker's offers a wide array of sugar free and Low Sugar flavors and both varieties are fat free.

Smucker's Natural Peanut Butter

Smucker's(R) Natural Peanut Butter is 100 percent natural, made with 99 percent peanuts and just a dash of salt. Just one serving of peanut butter -- two tablespoons -- provides eight grams of protein, two grams of fiber, 10 percent of the USDA Reference Daily Intake (RDI) of vitamin E and 12 percent of the RDI of magnesium. Smucker's Natural Peanut Butter is a cholesterol free food and contains zero grams of trans-fats per serving. Available in five different varieties -- Creamy, Chunky, With Honey, No Salt Added and Reduced Fat -- Smucker's Natural Peanut Butter offers consumers an assortment of choices.
