They always say that breakfast is the most important meal of the day right?  I have no idea who THEY are but I totally agree, especially for children.  Now, the idea is great but the time is limited in the morning before work and school which sometimes means that Jude goes to school in the morning after only having a breakfast bar in the car - I am not proud of that. Thankfully NESTLÉ® seems to know that there are mornings like this in most homes.  Time to share how we have started Fueling our Mornings with the help of NESTLÉ®!

Jude is a chocolate milk lover, MAJOR! Every time we go out to dinner that is what he orders.  While I am thankful that he wants to drink milk I do wonder how much that Chocolate is pretty much canceling out the healthy aspect of drinking milk.  He started wanting Chocolate Milk over just plain white milk even at home. Enter the battle over milk - THEY also say to Pick Your Battles - again, I have no idea who THEY are but THEY are right again.  Once we decided this battle wasn't worth it, we stumbled across the  NESQUIK® Powder Chocolate Drink Mix.  

Even though Jude is getting a treat and drinking Chocolate Milk he is still getting great nutrition. I do not hesitate to mix this up for him in the mornings before heading out for the day because I know that the extra little goodness in his glass is actually giving him more vitamins and nutrients! Good Food Good Life friends!

NESQUIK® Powder Facts (website):
"NESQUIK® Powder turns milk into an irresistibly delicious, extra nutritious drink for your family. NESQUIK® Powder has 25% less sugar than the leading syrup brand and is specially fortified with added calcium, Vitamin C and other essential vitamins and minerals to help build strong bones."

I am sure that most of you are familiar with the morning rush once school starts, right?  Who has time for breakfast?  I barely have time to get all of us showered, dressed, lunches packed and manage any meltdowns, let alone think about preparing a balanced, healthy breakfast for my family.  Well this school year is going to be different!  No more sugar filled cereals, bars and treats for the kiddos.  Using the yummy CARNATION® BREAKFAST ESSENTIALS™ Powdered Drink Mix I am getting creative in the kitchen but it isn't taking all morning! Mom For the Win again!

Told you it was easy!  Now I am writing out all kinds of smoothie recipe ideas using the CARNATION® BREAKFAST ESSENTIALS™ Powdered Drink Mix. I think my kids will love trying out the new creations in the coming months.

Not only am I a happy mommy when I think about all the great nutrition that my kids are getting in this Orange Creamsicle Smoothie but with the stress of breakfast gone in the mornings we seem to have a better time in the morning. Being a working mom is hard, I only get to see my children each morning before work for about an hour. *tear* So when we are running around stressing out about getting dressed, ready and fed for school or work I feel like our time isn't filled with good memories or experiences. Sharing simple moments with my family and being able to have some time to do it over some YUMMY smoothies makes me feel happy and blessed!

  9. My kids are grown and my idea of a creamsicle recently was to add some vodka to it but I can see how this would be a hit...heck even my 29 year old would get a kick out of it when she comes for a visit...some kids never really grow up!
