School Bell: Breakfast Cereal Tip
As part of the bedtime routine, I have each child pick out what cereal they want for breakfast the next day. Each child pours their cereal of choice into one of the sealable food storage bowls*, individual size. [This keeps the cereal from getting stale overnight, or attracting pets etc.] They set out a spoon, bowl, glass at their table place and place the storage bowl inside the cereal bowl.
On a normal morning, they are all ready to pour the cereal into the bowl add milk and eat. It goes MUCH faster without having to get everything out or make a cereal choice. [My kiddoes sometimes are incapable of making the smallest decision in the morning.] Bonus: Kids can mix cereals, for fun or to use up the odds and ends.
What are your favorite breakfast tricks?
