Weekday mornings are a zoo at my house. I’m sure most mothers can relate, but trying to send a teen and a preschooler off to school, feed and let out the dogs, AND get myself ready for work is almost impossible most days. We’re usually frantic…and we’re usually late. If you spend any time at my house in the morning, you’ll likely hear ALL of these, and all in the same day.
“GET UP! We’re already late!”
“Did you brush your teeth?”
“Where is your other shoe?”
“Just GET in the car!”
Which gets me thinking – this really isn’t much different from when I was growing up. My mom tried her best, but it seemed like we were forever behind. It probably doesn’t help, but as kids my siblings and I were all night owls. We loved going to bed late, and had such a hard time getting p in the morning. Much like my own kids I guess (as I type this, my 4-year-old didn’t fall asleep until 10:15pm…and he has school in the morning).
One thing that was constant throughout our busy mornings was breakfast. My mother instilled in us the importance of breakfast early on. She always told us that a good breakfast fuels you up and gets you ready for the day. She said that if we ate breakfast everyday, we’d have more energy, do better in school, and eat healthier throughout the day. I remember having breakfast all the time and on-the-go breakfasts (for obvious reasons) were the norm. One of our favorites as kids remains one of my kids’ favorites and we always have some on-hand in the pantry…Nestlé Carnation Breakfast Essentials.
Easily found at your local Walmart, Nestlé Carnation Breakfast Essentials, while being delicious and super-nutritious, are also really affordable. Located in the breakfast aisle, Nestlé Carnation Breakfast Essentials is only $5.87 for 14 servings!
I love serving Nestlé Carnation Breakfast Essentials to my family because I can rest assured that I am feeding my kids a nutritious breakfast. Each serving offers 2x the protein of an egg, 2x the calcium of yogurt, 2x the vitamin D of an 8 fl. oz. glass of milk, and 2x the vitamin C of a 4 fl. oz. glass of orange juice. Knowing this, why would I not have my kids drink this for breakfast?!?! Oh, and in case you’re wondering, it tastes great too and my 4-year-old loves it!
