Becel sought to reduce heart disease (and promote Becel margarine) via ‘love letters’ from children to their moms. Becel tells mothers: You take great care of your kids — take care of yourself too.
Too many kids lose their mothers to heart disease and stroke. So Becel sent moms a message from the heart.
- “Dear Mom: When I have a bad day at school, we talk while walking.”
- “I love it when you tuck me in before bed.”
- “You teach me manners. You make me eat vegetables. I love you Mom.”
- “You help me when something is wrong. You take such good care of me. I love you to the moon and back.”
You take great care of them. Take care of yourself too. Becel encourages healthy choices to reduce the risk of heart disease and stroke up to 80%. Encourage a Mom at Becel.ca.
