The past few weeks, I have been working with Quaker® Oats to make easy changes for my family. They sent me samples of products, including Quaker Warm & Crunchy Granola, to help me fix fast and delicious breakfasts.
Our weekday mornings can be packed with things that need to happen before we can head out the door for work and school. Sometimes it gets so busy that we let our good habits slide. Things like eating a wholesome breakfast, taking our daily vitamins and brushing teeth (clarification: the kids’ teeth, not mine). I don’t want our good habits to get lost in the shuffle. So I have been finding ways to mix it up in the mornings. Sometimes making a few small changes in our usual routine can make a big difference in getting our day started out the right way.
One way to reinforce my children’s good habits, like brushing their teeth, is to keep it exciting. Getting my kids to brush their teeth can be like pulling teeth (pun intended). So how do I mix things up to get them excited about it? I take the kids to the store and let them pick out a new toothbrush. We try a fun new flavor of toothpaste or mouth rinse. It may seem simple, but it’s the little things that really help.
Lucky for me, my children love to take daily vitamins. I wish I could say the same for myself. I decided to mix things up by trying a new type of vitamin, and found one I liked so much that I now look forward to taking them every day. I’m a believer that trying new things is a great way to mix it up!
As for wholesome breakfasts, my family is taking a few extra minutes each morning to eat before we go our separate ways. I have noticed when I eat breakfast, my energy level goes up. I’m in a better mood and I feel ready to get things done.
I’ve been trying hard to get the kids to sit down and eat breakfast, too. Even though school day mornings are hectic, Quaker’s Warm & Crunchy Granola is a fast way to eat a wholesome breakfast. All it takes to prepare is 15 seconds in the microwave. The crunchy goodness of granola with a little bit of warm milk helps my little guy start his day off right!
Sometimes all it takes is a little change to the same old routine to make things feel new and exciting. Changes that get my family’s day off to a good start are important to keep us going strong throughout the day.
