CrimFit Nutrition Program
The Crim Fitness Foundation works with children and adults in a variety of settings in the Flint community to teach them the importance of fruits, vegetables, low-fat dairy, whole grains and lean protein.
Stay Healthy at Home
Making nutritious choices and keeping physically active can be hard while staying at home. The CrimFit Nutrition Team is here to help with online resources for you and your family. We have put together downloadable nutrition activity packets and created engaging videos featuring the familiar faces of our FoodCorps Service Members and Nutrition Coordinators.
Recipe of the Month
This healthful version of pancakes features the delicious goodness of mashed sweet potatoes and whole grains, artfully balanced with sweet savory sautéed mushrooms infused with maple syrup and balsamic vinegar. This dish is perfect for dinner or brunch.
Tip of the Month
Find a healthy eating style that works for you by making small changes to your snack choices. The #MyPlateMyWins for Snacks video features small changes you can make to the foods you typically snack on. For example, choose dips and toppings made from vegetables, rather than cheese or butter to cut down on saturated fat and sodium. Vegetables also are a good source of fiber and will help you stay full until your next meal.

Annalane Miller, FoodCorps Service Member
Staff member of the month: Annalane graduated from Calvin University with a degree in Political Science and minors in Data Science and International Development Studies. She is passionate about good food and working with children and enjoys being able to share her love of vegetables and trying new foods with her students. This is her first foray into gardening and is perhaps more excited than the students when the things they planted actually grow. In her free time she enjoys reading, trying new recipes, running, visiting new cafes, drinking too much coffee, and kayaking.
