Us moms have hectic schedules in the morning, racing against the clock to get our kids out of the house and to school on time. And I’m sure I’m not the only one who has accidentally skipped breakfast because of the craziness of packing lunches and dressing kids so we don’t send them to school with their pj’s still on. And I’ve almost done that a few times in the past! How embarrassing for me!
Okay, so let’s be a little serious for a moment. Despite the craziness, we need to be reminded how important breakfast is, not only for our children but for ourselves. Personally, I have six kids – four are in school this year – and need all of the help and advice I can get!
Here are four reasons why breakfast is so important:
-It gives you energy and lessens fatigue to keep an active lifestyle.
-It keeps a healthy metabolism, while skipping breakfast slows it down to conserve calories.
-Food for thought, it helps with brain functionality and concentration.
-It keeps your heart healthy by reducing heart disease.
Tell me how us parents CANNOT benefit from these reasons!!
Yeah, that’s right, because we call can benefit. I mean who doesn’t want energy, and to be healthy?!
My Degustabox September box included Post Shredded Wheat. It just recently came out on the market, and puts a new twist on their cereal. I received the mixed berry flavor, but they also have cinnamon roll and s’mores flavors! At 210 cal, The nutrition ads 6 g of fiber, 5 g of protein, and several other vitamins and minerals.
As a mom who has been on a dairy free diet for the past month, my cereal options are limited since they include milk and soy in their ingredients. This shredded wheat cereal doesn’t contain them, so I’m able to combine it with my Almond milk for a nice, low-calorie breakfast (only 240 cal).
