Kids will love having Malt-O-Meal Cereals for Breakfast. Not only is it delicious, but it is also nutritious and easy.
Ahhhhh breakfast …. the wonderous meal that we all love and enjoy. Well, that is unless you have kids, and said kids hate waking up early. Thus turning this wonderous meal into a nightmare. Have you ever experienced a nightmare while awake? I have and it is not fun. My kids do NOT like waking up early. We have to wake up at 6am every morning for school. I sit at the table eating breakfast, while they are barely holding their heads up and keeping their face milk free. No matter what time they go to bed, breakfast at 6am just does not happen. Now, if we could make breakfast happen at 9am we would all be bright eyes and bushy tailed, but that simply will not be happening until winter break.
With all this in mind, I headed to my local grocery store to see if I could find anything that would help make mornings just a little easier. My husband has to be at work at 6am to start up the machines since he is a boss, so I am the lone survivor trying to fight out for breakfast every morning. I won’t sugar coat it, it sucks. I’m sure everyone has seen the meme that says moms start out with Mary Poppins voice and by the time it is time to load up the car to head to school, we have Batman’s voice. I hate to admit it, but it is true. Ok, back to my original story. I needed something to save us, to make breakfast amazing, to make the kids want to wake up and eat breakfast and get supercharged for school. I just didn’t know what, or where I would find it in the store. At that exact moment, I was crossing the cereal aisle and I found my cure; Malt-O-Meal. To be specific the Berry Colossal Crunch.
I remember this cereal growing up and I thought it was the bomb. Like I would literally count down the hours until I could enjoy a bowl. I didn’t even know they still made it. I picked up a bag and couldn’t wait to get home. I was like a kid on Christmas morning. This cereal is simply amazing. When the girls got home from school I opened the bag a little and let them take a good whiff. It smelled so good. I won’t even lie. I wanted to grab a handful and munch on it. We had to wait until the next morning to try it. Let me tell you, the kids were waking ME up after the alarm. They couldn’t wait to try out their Berry Colossal Crunch from Malt-O-Meal. Not only is it delicious, but it also gave the milk a sweet flavor. Anytime I can get my kids to drink a little extra calcium, I am game for it. The past week, we have woken up and couldn’t wait to get our day started and enjoy our delicious cereal. If you have kids that are hard to wake up, Berry Colossal Crunch from Malt-O-Meal is for you.
Not only is this a delicious treat for kids, it is also easy. Pour a bowl and go. If you are more creative, you could make marshmallow treats, granola, Chex mix and so much more. Malt-O-Meal offers affordable and great tasting cereals to help make mornings just a little bit easier. Check them out at your local grocery store today.
