Here in British Columbia we parents are still on the fence waiting for our kids to go Back to School. The teachers are on strike. Many children have already gone back this past week, enjoying the full swing of learning while saying goodbye to their summer. Our boys are on the fence waiting to hit the classrooms and
The hardest part about getting ready for back to school is getting everyone on the proper schedule. I have a few tricks up my sleeve for preparing the kids for the year ahead.
Being a stay at home mom, I love having my boys at home. I really enjoyed spending time with my teen Jake and his girlfriend, and my youngest Trace as we went on some family adventures, hung out in the sprinkler, watched late night movies and sat around eating snacks and goodies.
For my boys, the hardest part about mornings, other than waking up is eating breakfast. I prefer the boys eat a proper cereal, but they won’t. Instead, they like to snack before bedtime as most mornings include reading group, football, gym workouts, and they feel too rushed to eat proper.
After school the boys come running through the door, they are starving and invading my cupboards for anything to gobbling down and satisfy them before we eat dinner at 6 pm. Then after dinner, they snack at least twice before settling into bed.
Cereals That Taste Delicious!
Rice Krispies Multi-Grain Shapes Cereal great for snacking on with or without milk. These tasty multi-grain shapes are so much fun for kids like my youngest who is 8 years old. When I’m on the go, slipping two handfuls of these into a Ziploc bag to snack on while waiting after school or before supper is a great way to keep my son busy. He also loves the silly shapes they come in.
Special K Original one of my absolute favorites to eat while growing up next to Rice Krispies has a new recipe. It still tastes great and I love how much bigger it is. The kids and hubby don’t touch it as it’s mine mine mine!
Special K Low-Fat Granola is a great cereal to eat with fruit like strawberries or bananas, but even better with frozen homemade yogurt which the kids can just stir in and enjoy. Sweet and crunchy it’s so yummy!
Kellogg’s Krave Chocolate Flavored Cereal is a huge hit with my oldest son and his girlfriend. Girls love a chocolate fix, and I can just see Krista grabbing a handful of this on her way to school while picking up Jake. Jake likes it with milk himself. He loves how the chocolate flavor changes his milk to a cocoa taste — he’s such a big kid.
Now before or after school, the boys have what they need. Trace’s favorite is Kelloggs Krave cereal. He loves the chocolate flavor.
