Breakfast in the Car, the story of my life {sponsored post}

I am not a morning person. As a child I wasn’t much of one either. I stayed in bed as long as humanly possible every morning, and shoved breakfast in my face while walking to the school bus. Since I am old and this was before instant and portable breakfast creations, I ate dry cereal, frozen burritos (heated up) and leftover pancakes on my short walk. We were not allowed to eat on the bus, so I always had to make sure I finished and then stick any leftovers in to my lunch box for later.

Spencer approved.

Well, with Spencer, the apple does not fall far from the tree. Most school days, he eats his breakfast in the car. He likes random stuff for breakfast: string cheese, pretzels, crackers, yogurt (I don’t allow yogurt in the car. Spencer must eat that one before hand, normally when I am putting on his socks.) and the handiest of all breakfasts – cereal bars.

My savior

On non school days, our breakfast routine is much more relaxed. Often it includes yogurt, cereal, hard boiled eggs (no yolks, god forbid I try and make the toddler eat a yolk) and yes, still cereal bars. Strawberry is his favorite. I like blueberry. There are so many flavors it can be hard to choose which to get. You can see all of the flavors my local Vons store had in my google+ album. Spoiler alert!  I bought strawberry and blueberry even though there are a wide assortment of flavors, I know better than to rock the toddler boat.


If you are looking to stock up on car breakfast supplies, Safeway affilate stores (Safeway, Vons, Pavilions, Tom Thumb, Randalls, Genuardi’s or Dominicks) are currently running a buy 4 save $4 campaign. Be sure and use your club card and look for signage indicating participating products. This is a great way to stock up on some breakfast items and get a big savings.

His breakfast just fuels the dirty getting at school.

    Seriously, some days it’s all we can do to get Everett to eat something before school. ANYTHING. He asked for Ramen yesterday and We.Gave.It.Too.Him. Chris was all “I’m so worried he’s going to tell his teachers he had Ramen for breakfast and they’re going to sick social services on us.” I was like..first..he’s going to call it noodles. Second..AT LEAST HE ATE SOMETHING. lol I know where he gets it from, though, because I am not a breakfast eater. I can go until afternoon without eating anything, and often do. Well, when I’m not pregnant anyway. Del on the other hand is concerned about putting food in her belly the instant she’s awake – which she gets from her father. lol


  2. Cereal bars are one of our big go-to items as well.
