Kellogg's Love Your Cereal Mom's Breakfast Club- Week 6

This is sponsored content by BlogHer and Kelloggs.



It's Back to School time for many of us as summer draws to a close. However, we've been in school for about a month here, so we're sort of back in the swing of things. Though it's never easy, there are a few things I try to do to help get back in the school routine.

Every year I say I'm going to try to make the kids go to bed earlier at the end of the summer, so that the school routine won't be such a shock, but somehow it never works out that way. However, I hear it's a good thing to do.

I try to purchase and label all their school supplies in plenty of time before school starts so that we're not up and crazy the night before the first day.

I also force myself to get in the habit of getting(or remind people to do so) backpacks packed and lunches made the night before, because I always regret it when I don't. (Heh, right after I typed that, I realized I never put the drink money in my youngest's backpack tonight)

I also make an effort to do a "big" grocery shop in preparation for back to school so that we have what we need on hand for meals, especially breakfast, so we don't have to make late night runs to the store. We can never have too much cereal or waffles around these parts.

Cereal can be a convenient and affordable part of a balanced, nutritious breakfast. Want to know more? Check out Kellogg's Love Your Cereal.
