A L.E.A.N. Foundation for Parents

Dr. Sears’ L.E.A.N. Essentials is a fun, interactive, and educational course for parents and caregivers who have limited time or may want to initially take small steps towards learning more about nutrition and healthy living for their children and families. The program focuses on the four pillars of health:
  • Lifestyle – How we live
  • Exercise – How we move
  • Attitude – How we think
  • Nutrition – How we eat

Parents and caregivers are provided with the basic framework to begin moving towards healthier choices and behaviors in one short 2-hour course. Participants learn through direct instruction, group participation and by “filling in the blanks” of their L.E.A.N. Essentials workbook. Subjects addressed include:

-Why should you care about what your children eat?
-Traffic light eating
-Why breakfast is so important
-The skinny on fat
-How much protein is enough?
-Play helps kids grow!
-Water can be cool!
-Know the NO’s
-Myth busters

Participants find out that healthy eating can taste great and inside their L.E.A.N. Essentials workbook, they will find some healthy and delicious recipes like:

-Y.E.A.H Crepes!! (Yummy, Easy And Healthy)
-Jam Dots
-Sweet Potato Fries
-Homemade Tortilla Chips
-Fun Fruit Dip
