What in the world is L.E.A.N. anyway?!

L.E.A.N start workshop

I am so excited to tell you more about L.E.A.N. Start workshops! L.E.A.N. is an acronym representing lifestyle, exercise, attitude, and nutrition. These are the four pillars of all "L.E.A.N" workshops. 

The L.E.A.N. Start program was developed by William Sears, MD, known as "America's Pediatrician," and Sean Foy, M.A., a leading exercise physiologist and nutrition expert. Most nutrition education programs target children, but L.E.A.N. Start is uniquely designed for parents and caregivers.

“To make a significant change in the health of our children, we must emphasize the role parents play in modeling healthy behavior, and educate parents on the benefits and principles of nutrition because they are responsible for grocery shopping, preparing meals, and shaping children’s tastes. There are a number of programs out there but they fail to impact the behavior of the parents. We’ve determined that in order to achieve real success, the education of parents is critical.”
- Dr. Sears

L.E.A.N. Start workshops allows parents to "experience" nutrition and play, tasting healthy snacks and learning interactive games appropriate for children. The program also demonstrates simple strategies to implement; including effective methods for prevention and intervention in families where childhood obesity or nutrition related behaviors are a concern.

“Obesity isn’t the only problem our kids are facing, so we’ve designed a program that tackles a number of nutrition-related illnesses and issues. The parents we see in our programs are motivated by wanting their children to be healthy, and ultimately we are seeing significant improvement in both the parents and children. Parents who completed the course had an average confidence level of 4.43 out of 5 for continuing the healthy behaviors.”
- Sean Foy
