"I've always believed that living smart goes far beyond book smarts," said Burke-Charvet, TV host, personality and entrepreneur. "That is why it's so great what the Smartfood brand is doing – taking its own brand mantra of having 'smart in the bag' and creating a larger conversation about what it means to live SMART. I can only hope this will inspire more people to live a conscious lifestyle."
