Being on a kindergarten schedule this year has seriously thrown our family for a loop. We’ve gone from having to have the kiddos ready and at preschool by 9:30am, to having to have my son fed, dressed, and out the door by 7:15. On top of that, this mom is pregnant and exhausted and daddy has to be out the door at the same time as the little guy to head to work. Can you imagine the chaos that ensues in our house on a regular day-to-day basis?
While my kids would probably be okay skipping breakfast completely and grabbing something to eat on the go, it’s important to be able to have something for them they can sit down, relax, and enjoy before heading out for their day. Not only is it a great way to start the day mentally, but I’m sure you’ve all heard by now.. breakfast is the most important part of that day, right?! In all honesty, eating a healthy breakfast has proven to help in maintaining a healthy weight as well as help improve your brain function throughout the day. How do we do fuel our crazy mornings and keep everyone satisfied? A yummy bowl of Cheerios and a nice tall glass of Florida Orange Juice.
My kids always BEG for a bowl of cereal. Seriously, if there’s one thing I’ve learned being a mom of two (and soon to be three,) it’s to keep it simple. I used to think I wasn’t being healthy enough if I gave my kids a bowl of cereal and a glass of juice, but I’ve quickly learned not only is that not the case, but it’s their favorite choice too! They even like to make their own creations adding berries to the mix!
And for us mom’s? I normally prefer to have a smoothie for breakfast, so I like to buy the Trop50 for the less calories and mix up a yummy green smoothie. Here’s my favorite concoction for you to try for yourself!
And voila! An easy, simple, and healthy breakfast to start your day off to a perfect start! You can even snag an awesome coupon to take to your local Publix and stock up for yourself.. and enter the $15 PayPal Cash Giveaway below!
