Switch Up Your Child’s Breakfast

Switch Up Your Child’s Breakfast With Barbara’s Cereal

SWitch Up Your Childs Breakfast With Barbaras Cereal

Beauty Brite Disclosure

School has been back in session for a few weeks now and the daily grind of getting everyone up, dressed, and fed is becoming even more taunting than the day before, Breakfast is one of the biggest components. Finding something that is both delicious and healthy while quick to eat can sometimes be difficult. Heres a few simple ideas that you may typically overlook in a rush using a few of Barbara’s cereal selection! I have also included a cereal from Mom’s Best line just to provide variety. Feeding your children a healthy breakfast doesn’t always have to be an in-depth process. There’s also no reason that just because you’re a parent who uses cereal as a breakfast item, that you don’t keep your child’s health in mind.

Are you readying to switch up your child’s breakfast with just a few changes?

When we were pregnant with our son many years ago, we were buying everything baby! We had no idea what we needed but it seemed like we were both thinking of different needs. He was thinking about the tools needed to care for our son, while I was thinking about clothing, diapers, baby bathing products, and even other household needs.

As a single mom, I haven’t had the time or resources to travel as much as we would like to. I miss traveling. Due to my son’s special needs, we usually traveled by car or train. In the last several years, I’ve only traveled by plane a few times. Each time, it was such a culture shock for me because I learned so much from what other travelers used.

Items Every Kitchen Must Have

Items Every Kitchen Must Have

Beauty Brite Disclosure

I’ll be there first to admit that I’m not your typical kitchen friendly person.  To be honest most times it is usually safer for me to be anywhere else but in the kitchen.  Now that I’ve had kids I decided to work more in the kitchen to try and make things easier and share the workload with my husband, so we have been on the lookout for products that will help our lives be a little easier, and be able to help with dinner.

Your kitchen needs these items! 

Espressotoria system

Espressotoria System Pods

So with four kids six and under, what is one of the most essential kitchen items that I’m going to need you ask? Coffee and lots of it, don’t get me wrong I love my kids but man do they not ever sleep. So momma turns to coffee. I have been searching for a really good and easy to use coffee system for a while and I’ve finally found one. The Espressotoria System is an amazing cafe grade espresso system, letting you make everything from coffee to lattes to expressos right in the comfort of your own home. Whats the perfect coffee drink without that frothy top? Don’t fear because you also get this in your system, making your coffee experience complete. Unlike other machines you get you only can use up to 16 pods before needing to empty the containment area, making your coffee has never been so fun and easy. From a Brazilian Breakfast Blend to Espresso and more, there is a taste for everyone. All the pods are made to be fully recyclable, what is better than helping the planet and getting your coffee too!  This Espressotoria system is easy to use even for kitchen novices like me. For more information visit their Facebook, or get yours at Walmart or Amazon.

PowerAir Fryer Oven

PowerAir Fryer Oven 7 in 1

This next kitchen item I found makes life so much easier, we recently converted the garage into an studio apartment at my mother in laws house to help keep an eye on her, but we don’t have a full kitchen area downstairs. This means everytime we need to use the oven we have to head up through her house and use her oven, but now that we have found the Power AirFryer Over our lives have become so much easier. This compact machine is a 7 in 1 powerhouse that can replace a deep fryer, rotisserie oven, dehydrator, oven, toaster oven, pizza grill and microwave. This thing is seriously amazing. I honestly was a bit skeptical at first can this little machine do all this, but YES it can. This is so easy to use ( thank the Lord for that one ), it only took me 3 min, this morning to make my three oldest children breakfast, and when mornings are packed and hectic just the smallest win helps us tremendously.  Be sure to check out their Facebook, Amazon, or Website.

If you are looking for ways to make your kitchen more efficient then these items are for you. I know they sure help my daily life easier. Hope you love these products as much as I do.

It’s that time of year again, as the summer days draw to an end, for getting ready to go back to school. My oldest is now in first grade, so just like most parents when the dreaded school supply list come in and the struggle of finding the perfect products start. It can be so overwhelming to find where to even start with the list.  Office Depot / OfficeMax has come to the rescue, to save the day!

Office Depot OfficeMax

It’s crazy to think I’m the mom of a first grader, it seems like yesterday that she was just learning how to walk. I used to have so many people tell me when I was first pregnant that once you have children the time just flies by and man were they right.  I feel like I’ve just blinked and its seven years and four children later. I’ve been so truly blessed as a parent to have such wonderful children.  So when it was time to find some perfect supplies for my oldest I was excited for the big selection that Office Depot / OfficeMax offers. I wanted to find something that was as bubbly and sparkly was my daughter’s personality. I wasn’t disappointed, because I found some great options. From adorable Floating Glitter Binders to fun Fish Erasers they had the perfect assortment of everything she needed to make her year great. Great prices that don’t leave this momma breaking the break, so that always makes my life easier!

Floating Glitter Binder

I’d personally like to thank all of the amazing teachers out there who put their heart and souls into turning these kids into the brilliant minds of tomorrow. Hope everyone has an outstanding school year.
