We are always rushing out the door in the morning. I usually get the kids and myself ready while Hubs gets ready. If there is a little time, I'll give Mason something to eat. I rarely get to eat at home and if I make it to work in less than an hour, I'll grab a donut or pastry. Probably not the healthiest so I was determined to find a better solution.

Before children we could easily whip up breakfast and even enjoyed eggs with sausages on occasion. Target has all the necessary products available to give your busy family healthy options.

I topped a serving of Quaker® Oats (made with almond milk) with Nature Valley® Protein Granola, several Walnuts and some Grandma Hoerner’s® Big Slice™ apples snack. Mason loved the granola and apple snack spooned up with the oatmeal. Hubs was even excited about adding the Protein Granola to his morning shakes. 

I'm not a usual fan of oatmeal but when it's dressed up as such, I can no longer say no. Our family gives it a thumbs up and tummies are happy in the morning.

What do you usually prepare for breakfast? Do you have the luxury of time or are you in a mad dash like me?


  1. My girls LOVE oatmeal! esp when we add bananas or other fruits into it! It is more healthy and filling for them too!

  2. We are usually in a mad dash when it comes to breakfast! That looks quick, easy, and healthy!

  3. I have oatmeal with fresh fruit and maybe some greek yogurt and orange juice. If im pushed for time I just grab a clif bar and a banana. I also sometimes hard boil eggs the night before.

  4. Im the same!! Not a fan unless its all dressed up and then its delicious!!! Im a huge fan of oatmeal loaded with deliciousness!!
