My son loves breakfast as much as I do!
But, sometimes, he gets distracted by the TV when he’s supposed to be eating breakfast.
I love breakfast. It is and always has been my favorite meal of the day. You see, I’m a morning person, I wake up “bright-eyed” and ready to tackle the day. I exercise in the mornings. I’m more focused in the mornings. I more productive in the mornings. I’m hungry in the mornings. My boys love breakfast too, but during the week I don’t always have time to cook them a big breakfast. Mostly because I start blogging and lose track of time, but, whatever... I still need to send them to school with a full belly and alert mind.
That’s why, Honey Bunches of Oats Morning Energy is so awesome! It’s A NEW cereal to help get you going in the morning and keep you going all day. Packed with whole grain, protein and fiber, the combination of crispy whole grain flakes and granola clusters doesn’t sacrifice on taste to deliver a nutritious, wholesome breakfast. It’s available in two flavors, Cinnamon Crunch and Chocolatey Almond Crunch, both are really good. My boys liked the Chocolatey Almond Crunch, but I’m a Cinnamon girl so I prefered the Cinnamon Crunch. These cereals are a great way to jump-start your day and help reduce mid-morning hunger.
