Mornings are the most hectic part of my weekdays. And that's just with one child to get ready for school. I can't even remember how hard it must have been when my oldest girls where little since they were only a year apart and all went to school together. A lot of the morning rush is because I am up and on the computer from early on, so by the time I have to get Sammy up and ready, I am already having a busy morning. Still even though it's crazy and even though the time is super limited, I always make sure that we both have something in our stomach. You can not send the children to school on an empty stomach, you simply can't. Think of how it feels around 10:00 am when you have nothing in your stomach, how hard it is to concentrate and think about what you're doing. There's no way my little one will leave the house without a small breakfast, a glass of milk and some fruit.
An easy way to give ourselves something wholesome and delicious are the new Honey Bunches of Oats Breakfast Biscuits which are available in three delicious flavors, Honey Roasted, Strawberry and Chocolate Chip. These are so ideal for busy families who often need to have breakfast on-the-go. Packed in convenient pouches of four crunchy biscuits, it's the ideal on-the-go breakfast or snack for every member of the family. Each individual package of four crunchy biscuits provides more than 55 percent of your day’s whole grain, 4 grams of fiber and 5 grams of protein.
5 TIPS FOR ENSURING YOUR FAMILY HAS BREAKFAST EVERY MORNING
To save time prepare everything for morning. Set out outfits, lunches and anything else that will save you extra time for breakfast.
Put the kids to bed early, a more rested child will get up with more energy and get ready quicker. A more rested child will also not be as fussy and you won't spend precious time making them do everything practically by force.
Get the kids involved. Give one child the job of setting the table while another helps pour the juice. If they are involved, they might enjoy their breakfast more and actually eat some of it.
Find something that even your picky eaters will love and stock up. That's why I love that Honey Bunches of Oats Breakfast Biscuit offer three delicious flavors.
If all else fails and no one has time to sit down, give each one a package of Honey Bunches of Oats Breakfast Biscuit on their way out the door. These are so easy to eat while on-the-go.
