Easy Breakfast For The Kids

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of Quaker Oats for SocialSpark. All opinions are 100% mine.

I can not believe that Thursday is the last day of school for my kids.  They have full days Monday and Tuesday, and then half days on Wednesday and Thursday.  I am excited that I will no longer have to enforce bedtimes, but I am worried about my food budget during the summer months.  My kids qualify for free breakfast and lunch at school, which means that during the school year, I am only responsible for feeding them supper and supplying their tummies with snacks.  Once school is out, I have to make sure there is food in the house for every meal.

My kids are pretty self-sufficient, so it's not like I have to prepare all their food for them, which is good since I will be working everyday.  I want them to eat wholesome food, not just junk food.  If they had their way, they would eat ice cream and snack cakes all day.  I want them to eat foods that have some type of nutritional value, and Quaker Soft Baked Bars fit that bill perfectly.  Each one has 140 calories, 5 grams of fiber, and 6 grams of protein.  They can eat them right out of the box, or throw them in the microwave to heat them up a little bit.  Either way, i think they would ne the perfect breakfast snack.  Just look how mouth watering they look:

That's the Cinnamon Pecan one. Doesn't it look delicious! Check out all that icing! But, the Banana Nut Bread would probably be my favorite. I am a sucker for anything banana.

Lunch will be a little more difficult, because even if I buy lunch meat and bread, they will make a box of mac and cheese or something.  But I guess as long as they have one good meal each day I should be satisfied.  Plus, I know I will be making healthy dinners, since I am watching what I eat too.
