I don’t know how things are in your house, but in our house weekday mornings are the WORST. Trying to get my kids up and out the door on time five days a week is just about enough to drive me insane.
This means that anything that can help our mornings run just a little tiny bit smoother is a huge win in my book. Bonus points for being healthy and delicious (and cute!)
Get a jump start on your week by prepping on the weekend! Your family’s breakfasts, lunches, and dinners will be a breeze all week.
My kids love these little oatmeal cups, and I love them because they literally take seconds to throw together in the evening, while saving us at least 20 precious minutes of frustration in the morning. You can use whatever fruit or berries you have on hand, or use flavored yogurt to mix it up even more.
Any way you throw it together, it is the breakfast sanity saver that might just change your life!
