belVita Breakfast Biscuits
I have never been a big breakfast eater, most mornings I am known to skip it all together, not good I know but I always make sure my kids eat a healthily breakfast giving them a great start to their day. Three of my children love breakfast and it is probably the meal that they eat the most at, where my 10 year old daughter seems to have picked up my bad habit and if she could would probably skip breakfast as well. It is a struggle of a morning to get her to sit down and eat anything. She isn't a fan of cereal and yes we have tried a lot of them and she will eat eggs for lunch or dinner but not for breakfast. Most mornings I feel like I am forcing down the one piece of toast and cup of milk that she has chosen and then thinking how does she make it to morning tea at school which is a good three hours after she had breakfast.
I was running out of ideas to get her to eat a better breakfast. I had seen these new Breakfast biscuits at the supermarket and had picked them up, then put them back on the shelf thinking there is no way that she is going to eat these, I will just be wasting my money.
Imagine my surprise when the next week I was offered the opportunity to review them and a box of the New Cranberry variant arrived on my doorstep. Sweet!!
We all know that breakfast is the most important meal of the day and most of us will wake up in the morning with the best intentions to eat a good breakfast, but life often gets in the way - as a result we skip, rush or compromise breakfast.
When my daughter first saw the box she was pretty keen to give them a try. Her words exactly" You mean I can have biscuits for breakfast" My reply " Of course you can sweetheart, lets open them and give them a go" Of course the other three didn't want to miss out, so using the words the kids told dad "Mum let us have biscuits for breakfast" Yes, yes i did!!
There are 4 biscuits per individual packet but we shared out 2 serves and they got 2 biscuits each alongside a cup of milk and some apple. For small children I think 2 biscuits are quite sufficient with maybe some yoghurt, fruit or milk.
And what did my fussy breakfast eater think of these. Apparently they were super yummy and she wanted to know if she was allowed them everyday. So all in all she was happy and I was happy that she was actually wanting to eat breakfast.
Of course I had to try them as well and was pleasently suprised at how yummy they were. They will be great to grab on the way out the door to eat on the school run. I cant wait to try some of the other flavours, they all sound so yummy!!
There are 5 tasty flavours to try including the new Cranberry variant, Honey & Nut with choc chip, Milk & Cereals, Crunchy Oats, and Fruit & Fibre.
