Kellogg's Love Your Cereal Mom's Breakfast Club- Week 7

This is sponsored content by BlogHer and Kelloggs.



Now that we know each other a little better over here, I feel like I can tell you: I'm not always a good breakfast eater.

Part of it is that I usually don't get hungry until around 9:30 or 10:00 am. I've always been like that, even as a kid. So, sometimes it's hard for me to get enthused about getting breakfast on the table on hectic school mornings.

But, make no mistake, even with teenagers, we always serve breakfast, and my kids eat it, though I think the youngest has inherited my penchant for late breakfast. Besides being the right thing to do nutrition-wise, it's just part of our routine, and sticking with one routine helps the day go more smoothly.

We also quickly review the calendar before everyone leaves for the day. It's helpful to visualize what the day will bring, and it (usually) keeps us from forgetting to pick up a kid, since getting left at school doesn't exactly help the day have a positive spin.

As we've talked about before, one of the most important things for us to start the day on a positive note is to make sure everyone is ready for school the night before. If we're organized, and on time, everyone leaves the house in a better mood, and that sets the tone for the day. Since cereal is quick and easy to serve, it often plays a big part in our ability to get out of the house on time.

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