I don’t know about your house, but mornings in our home are like a whirlwind. We have a set routine and if it gets altered in any way, it can become a disaster of things left out of book bags, breakfast rushed, and buses missed. Once my kids are on the bus, my routine begins including cleaning up after breakfast, walking our dog, running errands, household chores, and blogging. My dog, Roxy always comes first – after my kids, of course!
I participated in an Influencer Program on behalf of Mom Central for Nutri-Grain. I received product samples and promotional item to thank me for participating.
Some days are so busy that I rush off without eating a healthy breakfast. Normally, I grab something on my way out the door – sometimes healthy, sometimes not. You know how it is, I’m sure. I always make sure that I feed my kids a healthy breakfast because I know the importance of breakfast but don’t always apply this to myself because I’m so busy. If I skip breakfast, I normally reach for a snack sometime before lunch, which is never as healthy or satisfying as breakfast would have been in the first place.
I was recently introduced to the new Nutri-Grain® Fruit & Oat Harvest Cereal Bars. Nutri-Grain Bars were my go-to breakfast while in college and my family enjoys them regularly. We have all really enjoyed the Nutri-Grain® Fruit & Oat Harvest Cereal Bars this month and I like how hearty and good for you they are.
Each bar gives you 4 grams of protein to start your morning off right, giving you lasting energy all morning long. Plus, the flavor combinations with real fruit and whole grains are delicious. I really enjoy the texture and layering with the fruit on top too.
From the first taste of the Nutri-Grain® Fruit & Oat Harvest Cereal Bars, I was instantly taken back to the first time I tried my mother-in-law’s pineapple bars. It is a recipe that I serve my family quite often and one of my husband’s childhood favorites. It too has an oat base with fruity topping.
The oat and grain base of the Nutri-Grain Fruit & Oat Harvest Cereal Bars are soft and chewy. The fruit topping is sweet and flavorful. My family agrees that it is a sweet (but not too sweet) start to the day, whether we are rushed or not.
Speaking of being rushed. This week has been extra busy. My husband had a back issue earlier this week which left me with all the dog walking duties. Roxy loves her walks first thing in the morning, regardless of the weather. I decided to bring along a Nutri-Grain® Fruit & Oat Harvest Cereal Bar for this morning’s walk. Usually I can sneak a snack while taking her for a walk but not today! She wanted a bite too!
Sorry, Roxy. This is mama’s breakfast!
Nutri-Grain is like a familiar friend, as I mentioned, I’ve been a fan my entire adult life. I always have Nutri-Grain bars on hand for busy mornings and afternoon snacks. I’m happy that they introduced this new cereal bar for loyal and new fans alike.
Pick up a box of both the Strawberry and Blueberry flavors when you do your grocery shopping this week. Trust me, you’ll enjoy both flavors and it will help you power through your morning with the energy you need to get through a morning of work, exercising, walking your dog, cleaning your house, chasing after your kids, or anything else that fills your morning!
