Don't Skip Breakfast! Grab a Nutri-Grain® Fruit & Oat Harvest Cereal Bar To-Go Instead #NGHarvest


I participated in an Influencer Program on behalf of Mom Central for Nutri-Grain. I received product samples and promotional item to thank me for participating.

As parents, sometimes we are so focused on making sure our children are doing what's best for them that we forget to take care of ourselves.  Take breakfast for instance . . . There are days when we have to fight to get our children to finish even a small breakfast, but we do it because we know they need the fuel to perform their best at school.

Since I work at home, I usually have time to grab a quick breakfast to eat while I work after I've put the children on the school bus.  My husband, on the other hand, usually runs out the door empty-handed and often goes through the morning with only a cup of coffee in his stomach.  I don't know how he makes it through to lunchtime that way.  On the few occasions when I forgot to eat something for breakfast because I got sidetracked by work, I was quickly reminded halfway through the morning with a feeling of extreme weakness and sometimes even a bit of nausea.

Because my husband works long days, I try to keep some nutritious to-go options for him to grab on his way out.  Kellogg's Nutri-Grain® Fruit & Oat Harvest Cereal Bars are a healthy new option that contains whole grains, real fruit, and 4 grams of protein in each bar.  They are like having a cereal bar and a granola bar all in one!

Nutri-Grain® Fruit & Oat Harvest Cereal Bars are currently available in Country Strawberry and Blueberry Bliss.  Thank goodness my husband enjoys both varieties because he is constantly at risk of having the strawberry bars stolen out from under him by one of our children.

To make sure you get through the day without running out of steam, try carrying one or two Nutri-Grain® Fruit & Oat Harvest Cereal Bars and a small bottle of water with you or keeping some in your desk at work.  These bars are surprisingly filling.  You just never know when you'll find yourself stuck at work late or in a bad traffic jam and will need something to help keep you going until your next meal.
