We’ve been on this huge breakfast kick around here as it is one of the most important meals of the day helping to get your mind and body fueled up for the day! Nobody should start their day on an empty tank. But, it’s not always easy to really get those breakfast meals done and eaten on time while leaving for school, work and other activities. And after a while we run out of ideas for quick, simple and easy breakfasts. I have a few breakfast solutions you might find helpful or at least get you thinking how you can put a spin on your rushed morning breakfasts.

I have to admit we are a house divided. Half love  peanut butter, half  Nutella . What side are you on? Either way, spread topping your granola bar and add fruit onto the plate. This is a quick and easy breakfast solution I think you’ll love!

There are those days when we over sleep, nobody’s perfect, right? I like to mix up some cereals together and put them in a plastic bag or container so they are ready for grabbing then Sammie can eat something on the drive to school. My mix included: Nature Valley® Protein Granola, Honey Nut Cheerios® Medley Crunch™ cereal and Trix® cereal.


Add fruit, if you have time cut it up and add the packet of Nutella and your ready to run with your quick breakfast.

I found Grandma Hoerner’s® Big Slice™ apples snack to be the perfect topping for yogurt and oatmeal!

Now this is how I like to start my mornings! Often times I forget how easy oatmeal is only 5 minutes to prepare! Slice up fruit add in coffee and get those ideas flowing.

Another solution for when you are running late is to set up the family a grab and go container add any of your favorites to the bowl! Ready to drop in the lunchbox, backpack, purse or just grab to go!
