It’s not hard to make your family happy in the morning. When they start their day with these breakfasts, they’ll be off to a great start!
If you’re a mom, you already know that sometimes it’s hard to please everybody in the family. Scooping the ice cream for dessert each night is an exact science to be sure that one kid doesn’t have any more than the other. When one asks to have the windows down in the car, the other will complain that it’s too windy. Don’t get me wrong, my girls are pretty good most of the time. It’s just that keeping them happy simultaneously can take some work.
I love that we can at least start our mornings off easy because they always want the same thing for breakfast, Honey Nut Cheerios. They’ve always loved traditional Cheerios but ever since they tasted Honey Nut Cheerios, they’ve been completely hooked. Of course, they crave it for the taste but I like it because the first ingredient on the list is whole grain oats. There’s also no artificial flavors or colors and best of all, no high fructose corn syrup.
My girls snack on Honey Nut Cheerios after school too, so I usually stock up on the biggest boxes I can find during my weekly shopping trip to Publix. Publix has everything you could possibly need for breakfast. While I’m there, sometimes I even pick up a little treat for my hubby. Years ago he told me a story about how his college roommate drove him crazy by eating all his Cookie Crisp cereal. We still joke about it and sometimes I’ll throw a box in the cart, just for fun. I have to admit, cookies for breakfast are pretty awesome. Now he just has to worry about me eating them all!
Of course, while I love cookies for breakfast, that’s more of a treat than an everyday thing. I’ve been trying to eat healthier and my breakfast of choice is a big bowl of Multi Grain Cheerios. Even if I sneak in a little chocolate later, at least I know the day is off to a good start. Multi Grain Cheerios are made with five whole grains and contain 100% daily value of nine vitamins and minerals, not counting the blueberries I throw in. Our mornings are so hectic that I like to wait until the girls are off to school, then enjoy a quiet breakfast by the pool.
How Do You Make Your Family Happy?
It’s simple…just let them start the day with their favorite Big G Cereal. Now is definitely the time to stock up because you can use these Publix coupons to save a little extra money…those dollars add up, right? Here’s what you’ll get:
2/2 – $1 coupon on two boxes
2/9 – Trix, Cinnamon Toast Crunch, French Toast Crunch, Cocoa Puffs, Lucky Charms, Cookie Crisp, Reese’s Puffs, Tiny Toast & more
I know I’ll be shopping big the week of the 26th because I love BOGO. Hopefully I have enough Multi Grain Cheerios to last until then. Otherwise, I may have to break into the Cookie Crisp!
What’s your favorite Big G cereal? Would you go more for the Multi Grain Cheerios or do you prefer something sweeter like Cookie Crisp for breakfast?
