Every parent wants their child to grow up healthy and strong. One of the most important things a parent can do is make sure their child eats a healthy, balanced diet to meet the child’s high energy and nutritional needs.
What children eat and drink during their early years can affect their health for many years to come. General eating habits are formed in the first few years of life so it is very important that we encourage our children to eat good, wholesome, nutritious food.
These workshops will give you easy-to-implement tools and information to:
Even More Benefits
What do parents notice after taking the L.E.A.N. Start workshops?
A lack of good nutrition has been shown to have a dramatic effect on children’s ability to concentrate, their fine motor skills, as well as their overall attitude, behavior and performance. Many children, even those who do not look overweight, can be suffering from Nutrition Deficit Disorder (NDD), which contributes to ADHD, developmental delays, depression, learning disabilities, OCD, allergic diseases, cardiovascular disease, GERD, infectious diseases and inflammatory diseases (dermatitis, colitis, bronchitis, etc.).
Reasearch confirms that to effectively impact the health of a child, change needs to begin at home with the parents themselves. Based on this fact, Dr. Sears' LEAN Start eWorkshop focuses on education and empowering parents, which can dramatically improve the health of the child and the entire family.

A Childs's Health Begins with the Parents
When a child struggles with their learning, behavior, performance, weight or overall health, the impact is felt heavily by the parents. Many times parents seek help from tutors, medications or school coaches or counselors. However, in many cases the solution is easily found through changes in Lifestyle, Exercise, Attitude or Nutrition.
Food and a Child's Brain
Food impacts how well a child’s brain works, affecting their moods and abilities. In these illustrations, you see how in a child’s brain junk food can cause neurotransmitters, which pass along information, to function improperly. Smart foods, however, allow information to be processed correctly and help the child function at their optimal level.
