This morning, I must have hit the snooze button at least eight times before crawling out of bed. I looked at the clock and realized I had 20 minutes to wake up the little kids, get them dressed, fed, and off to school. Oops. I’d like to say that this morning was just an isolated incident, but unfortunately, it happens more often than I care to admit. I stay up until 3:00AM or so most nights to work in peace and quiet, but it makes it awfully hard to wake up on time in the morning.
Still, even with the rushing around, I hate to send my kids off to school without something in their stomachs. I mean, breakfast is the most important meal of the day, right? Breakfast is when you break your fast of 8-12 hours. Decades of studies have shown that kids who eat breakfast are more alert and do better in school. Kids who eat cereal regularly, get more vitamins and minerals than those who don’t since cereal is fortified with essential nutrients, and cereal consumers, on average, have lower BMIs.
So, as hectic as our mornings sometimes are, I insist they eat something, even if it’s just a banana or a granola bar hastily consumed in the car, on the way to school. On the crazy-busy days, we usually grab Pop-Tarts, granola bars, a piece of fruit, string cheese, baggies of dry cereal, graham crackers, Go-Gurt, or even cookies. What? Cookies have eggs in them. They’re totally a breakfast food!
So, what’s your go-to breakfast when you’re in a hurry to get out the door in the morning?
