I think most kids have started back to school at this point. There may be a few folks who are going back next week after the Labor Day holiday. Based on all the 1st day of school pictures that I have seen flood my social media pages, I am guessing most kids are already back in school.
Those first few weeks can be rough trying to get everyone settled into a new routine. For me, the morning routine is the hardest part to manage. I do as much as possible the night before to make the mornings run as smoothly as possible. Still, somehow I always seem to be running a few minutes behind.
That's why I love Carnation Breakfast Essentials®. I can whip up a delicious and nutrition breakfast option that's ready in a matter of minutes. Even when I am running super late, I can still whip up a tasty drink and take it with me to enjoy on the way to the carpool line.
Now if I ever happen to be ahead of schedule, I have been known to whip up a little something extra special. packet of Carnation Breakfast Essentials® mixed with milk is a quick and delicious option for a nutritious start to the day. BUT...with a few extra ingredients you can create a recipe that will have the whole family running to the table!
My Blueberries & Cream Shake is a delicious option that can be ready in about 5 minutes. My boys absolutely love the taste and I'm happy knowing that they are getting balanced nutrition as they sip that tasty treat!
Of course this also makes a fantastic after-school snack as well. Be sure to take advantage of the great deal we have running at Publix and you can have this ready whenever you want a great shake that will make your whole family happy!
