Kellogg's Love Your Cereal Mom's Breakfast Club- Week 9

This is sponsored content by BlogHer and Kelloggs.



We've already established that mornings can be a hectic time, especially if your kids are older, and you have to get them out the door to school or sports, and it's always nice to have some foods on hand to make things simpler.

For us, Nutri-Grain Cereal Bars (not a product placement, we really do eat a lot of them) are a must-have when we're in a hurry.

As I've said before, there are times we have to leave the house at dark-thirty, and no one wants to get up any earlier than they have to, so breakfast is sometimes in the car. They're also good for snacks after early morning sports games when it's not quite time for lunch.

Keeping a variety of cereals around as well as Eggo Waffles also simplifies the breakfast routine for us since there's bound to be something everyone likes, and the chance for arguing (about food, anyway) is diminished.

To keep things simple in the mornings, it's also important to do a check the night before to make sure you have things like, oh, say milk, juice and food, so you can actually have breakfast the next day.

Also, like we've talked about before, it's imperative that everyone get everything, books, lunch, clothes, shoes etc., the night before so everything is ready to go out the door. We have to do it every single day, no matter how late at night it is. As a matter of fact, I need to go do lunches and drink money right now.

Do you have a special routine or foods you keep on hand to make your mornings simpler? Share it below!
