Kellogg's Love Your Cereal Mom's Breakfast Club- Week 4

This is sponsored content by BlogHer and Kelloggs.



I want to tell you that we always have time for a complete breakfast around here.

I want you to believe I get up and cook a hot breakfast in the cold of winter each morning before I lovingly send my family out into the world.

I also want a pony, but that's probably not going to happen, so you can imagine that my previous 2 statements may be a bit lacking in truthiness.

The fact is, I have 2 teenagers with variable eating habits, and an 8 year old that is like me, and really doesn't get hungry until the middle of the morning.

Combine that with us all needing to leave the house by 7am for three different places each weekday and a busy sports schedule on the weekends, some mornings we're lucky to have clothes on by the time we hit the door, much less a complete, sit-down breakfast.

On those in-a-hurry mornings, we are all about the cereal bars:

(Please note, this is my actual pantry, it was not specially stocked for this post, the Nutrigrain Bars are possibly the reason my children are still alive.)

The kids scoop them up and run when we're late, or have to be somewhere at the crack of dawn. I think Busy Dad even keeps a box of them in his car. They're also often my youngest kid's morning snack at school since he may or may not have eaten the breakfast he was served at home.

What's your go-to breakfast when you're in a hurry at home?
