Today is day 1 of 30 Tips for a Great Start with Team Kellogg’s! Kellogg’s cereals have been a staple in our house ever since I was a kid. If you read my post last week, then you know – I actually grew up near Battle Creek, so we’re “Team Kellogg’s” all the way. ;) Anyway – I’m really happy to be kicking off the Tips for a Great Start series today. I’ll be sharing a few tips we employ in our hectic household using our favorite cereals with you in the coming weeks – so stay tuned!
Today’s tip comes with a fun little challenge: how many healthy snacks can you pack for your family in a minute?
I love having Kellogg’s Frosted Mini-Wheats when I get hungry mid-morning – I actually like them more without milk than in the bowl! They are a much better alternative than anything out of the office vending machine, and it only takes a few seconds to put a serving in a baggie or bowl to take with me to the office.
Moms also know, hungry kids do NOT love shopping, banking, recycling, or any of the other stops you have to race around making. Packing a snack just in case is like insurance to get things done! I get out the cereal boxes and pack up a bunch at a time, and store them in in the pantry in a plastic bin.
It literally takes just seconds to grab one for my purse, for the diaper bag, or even as a mid-morning snack around the house. Raya is allowed to help herself to ONE bag – which also helps avoid potentially messy situations like this:
Don’t think I don’t see you under the table, little miss!
Keeping things quick and easy helps the whole morning start off on a more productive note (and I don’t have to tell other moms how great that feels).
