breakfast station for kids

 

So school is starting in the next few weeks around here, and some of you are actually sending your kids back already! {Which I think is an excellent idea!! Get on the all year school train PA!} I needed to get things ready for back to school now because the next few weekends are pretty busy for our household.

My kids have an entire list of school supplies they need for this year, so we headed over to Walmart to get everything on their supply list. While I was there I wanted to grab some easy and quick breakfast and snack items. I decided that with both boys in school full time now and me working as a school nurse I need things to run as smooth as possible in the morning!

grab and go for mornings

I decided I was going to make a lunch box station, with grab and go items for their lunch boxes. And a breakfast station with items each of the kids can choose to grab and help prepare for themselves!  I do believe that my kids need to start helping more with these chores so this was a perfect solution!

Right when we walked into Walmart there was a huge display of Quaker items set up with bonus boxes of Chocolate Chip granola bars 24 count plus a birthday cake bar bonus! Perfect!! These can be used for in the mornings, and also be thrown into their lunchboxes as a nice snack at lunch or afternoon!  The granola bars are a perfect grab and go item along with a banana for mornings if we are a bit rushed for time!

Then I grabbed the Maple & Brown Sugar Instant Oatmeal packets in a 20 pack box. Needing to just add hot water for a quick and hot breakfast is perfect for my plan! Plus both boys love the Maple & Brown sugar flavor! It’s really convenient to be able to buy it in such a large quantity without needing a “club membership”

And lastly I grabbed a HUGE box of Cap’N Crunch Peanut Butter cereal. If the boys feel like a bowl of cereal, they can quickly grab the pre-measured  amount, add milk and done! Plus the oldest kid in the house LOVES this cereal too! 😉

See all the Quaker items you can find at Walmart on the Walmart Quaker page!

I am excited to see how my breakfast station works out once school is in full swing and mornings are a bit more chaotic around here. But for now the boys like knowing what is available and feeling a bit more independent being able to help themselves!

  1. I love setting up a breakfast station so the kids can grab and go. If they have to search for food, they usually won’t end up with anything. #client
