Smart Bites Genesee County

By engaging local restaurants, community leaders, and teenagers, Smart Bites Genesee County helps make it easier for young people to make healthier choices and to begin to reverse the dangerous trend of childhood obesity. Smart Bites Genesee County is administered by the Greater Flint Health Coalition. Since 1992, the coalition has examined the challenges affecting Genesee County’s (Michigan) health status. In 2011, the coalition launched Commit to Fit!, a community-wide health behavior improvement campaign. As a next step in improving the health of those in and around Flint and Genesee Counties, the coalition has committed to integrating Smart Bites into its efforts.
