While Illinois ranks tenth in childhood obesity, there is a company committed to helping kids and teens lose weight. Growing Lean is a healthy meal delivery program that was created by local pediatricians in partnership with dieticians and behavioral counselors to help kids and teens lose weight. Growing Lean offers a comprehensive approach to losing weight and making healthier lifestyle choices — including freshly prepared, ready-to-serve, portion-controlled meal plans, exercise plans, and nutritional counseling that is delivered weekly to your door. This is a hands-on lifestyle approach to help kids get on the right nutrition track. This program is ideal for Chicago area mothers who struggle with the weight or eating habits of their teens and tweens. Growing Lean delivers fully prepared, portion controlled meals made from fresh ingredients.
According to the Bachman Family, whose 11-year old son tested the food for three days found the food to be quite tasty and comparable to high-end restaurant quality food. Compared to Chefs Diet, they stated, “Growing Lean is cheaper and 1,000 times better tasting.” The family also denoted the dietitian to be more knowledgeable than their local health club dietitian. She kept their son focused and gave handouts that he referred to quite often. In fact, mother Michelle Bachman is already recommending the program to other families as they were overall pleased with the quality, packaging, amount of food given in the calorie program they chose. The ease of the website is user-friendly and the options on which program suits your child’s need and the family’s budget is another plus about the program.
At this time, Growing Lean cannot accommodate individuals with food allergies. They are working on it, and they hope to be able to offer this service in the future.
