    NEW YORK -- Recognizing American's growing interest in eating healthier and the demand for products that deliver, Health magazine named 25 products the winners of its second "Best of Food" awards.

    Dubbed "The ultimate guide to grocery shopping," the special report appears in Health's May 2006 issue. Health reviewed 500-plus products -- from snacks and smoothies to frozen meals and desserts -- based on criteria that included taste, nutrition, convenience, and availability.

    The 25 winners were chosen by a panel of food experts, including best-selling cookbook author Mark Bittman, Food Network's Robin Miller, spa chef Scott Uehlein, and Supermarket Guru Phil Lempert, a Progressive Grocer columnist. "From go-to goodies for desktop dining and guilt-free snacking to super-fast dinners and more, the result is a well-edited list of foods you don't have to think twice about filling your shopping cart with," said Frances Largeman, Health's food and nutrition editor.
