L.E.A.N. Essentials Workshop
Dr. Sears L.E.A.N. Essentials is a one-time 2-hour workshop for parents or caregivers. It is an introductory class based on the L.E.A.N. Start program and filled with practical solutions for parents. We help you understand how your child’s brain is directly impacted by lifestyle, exercise, attitude, and nutrition choices.
You will be guided through a fast paced and highly interactive session where we discuss why you should care about what your family eats. We will touch briefly on fats, proteins, and sugars, and give you several delicious and healthy recipes to try at home. We will also discuss how play helps kids grow.
L.E.A.N. Start is a 6-week workshop that allows parents and caregivers of children ages 3-12 to "experience" nutrition and play, taste healthy food, and learn interactive games appropriate for children. It offers fun, simple, affordable strategies that will help your family have more energy and better behavior. It was developed by Dr. William Sears, known as America's Pediatrician, and other experts in the field of children's nutrition, health, and fitness.
We will introduce you to traffic light eating and spend time talking about right carbs, right fats, fiber, proteins, and water.
