Three Tips For Surviving Busy School Mornings

Time is our most precious commodity. With the girls officially back in school and being a fan of morning routines, we usually have a handle on the day. However, sometimes, we have a slight change in schedule when mom has a meeting in the city at 8 a.m;  that means the kids has to go to school earlier than usual. That’s when we switch up our morning routines and employ these Three Tips For Surviving Busy School Mornings.

This post is the first in a three-part series with Lance.

Tips For Surviving Busy School Mornings

Have a To-do list

Have a To-do list. Don’t underestimate the importance of having a to-do list. Having a clearly defined plan for the day helps you feel accomplished as you cross off your list. Yes, nothing like a mid-day energy boost because you finally finished that proposal.

Delegate. If the kids are old enough, let them take charge of a few things. It could be as simple as older sibling helping the little one tie his or her shoes in the morning. Not only will the kids have a sense of responsibility she will take pride in helping her little sister. This little bit of assistant saves time and helps streamline your day.

Breakfast on the goBreakfast on the go. No need skipping breakfast because you have to rush out of the house. Try having breakfast on the go. Even on busy mornings, we make sure the kids get the proper nutrients they need to fuel their day, like the new Lance Quick Starts breakfast sandwich. They’re granola breakfast biscuit sandwich made with two baked crackers and a delicious filling in the middle. With 8 flavors there are lots of options to love. Our hands-down favorite flavors are Vanilla Greek Yogurt, Raspberry Greek Yogurt, Maple French Toast and Everything Bagel.  Each biscuit is packed with 3 grams of protein, 13 grams of Whole Grains, and it offers a good source of B-Vitamins and fiber. They’re available at Walmart, Stop and Shop and other retailers. They retail for about $2.99 depending on the store.

Which one of the eight Lance Quick Starts Granola Breakfast Biscuit flavor would you like to try?
