Kellogg's Cereal in a Cup- a Busy Mom's Dream!


As a working Mom with 7-year-old quadruplets, I am constantly looking for ways to make life easier! (As you can imagine!)

 

 



Most mornings, the Steece house operates like a well-oiled machine.



Other days: we can't find shoes, someone is missing his homework, we have no bread, sister doesn't like her outfit, boys are fighting, we have no milk, sister is having a meltdown, we are running late, etc.

On these horrific mornings, Mama is doing her best just to survive! I have to get myself ready for work and make sure that 4 kids are clean, dressed, fed, packed and out of the house without being late.

One of the lessons we taught the kids at a very young age was how to make their own breakfast and lunches. Let me tell you, it has been an absolute life saver.

Kid-made breakfast is often messy and terrifying when you multiply it by four. Can you guess what our favorite go-to breakfast food became? Why cereal, of course! You cannot go wrong with Kellogg's. It is quick, easy and convenient, and always satisfying.

I wish I could tell you that we are the type of parents who do not allow food in the car, but I would be lying. When you are constantly on the go, racing from one event to another, you are many times left with no other choice than to eat in the car. This is why I LOVE Kellogg's Cereal In A Cup! They are easily portable, prepackaged servings that the kids literally grab and go!



Cereal is not just for breakfast. There are many different places where we enjoy Cereal In A Cup as a fun snack, especially with summer activities quickly approaching:
- on our way to baseball games
- while playing at the park
- at the pool
- on a long road trip

It's the perfect anytime, anywhere, anyone food.

Don't forget all of the yummy snacks that you can make using Kellogg's cereal. Good old fashioned Rice Krispy Treats are a Steece family favorite! Be sure to check out the link below for fun cereal treat recipes and get in the kitchen with your kiddos!

We're actually moving into a really small place this summer ... downsizing so we have less to maintain and more time to enjoy life! #MakingTheMostOfSummer

Mandi said...

I plan to be #MakingTheMostOfSummer by spending as much time as I can with my two kids. My oldest is about to finish Kindergarten, so we will do some fun "big boy" stuff just with him. And my youngest, you just turned one, will get to experience her first pool time this summer. Fun! (#SweepstakesEntry)

So far summer hasn’t officially started for one of my kids since she opted, voluntarily, to do 2 weeks of summer school. Usually we spend a ton of time outdoors and at the beach during the summer so once school is out completely for her that’s where we’ll be.
