You've probably heard it said that breakfast is the most important meal of the day but it can also be the most challenging, especially for busy families. At our house, my husband goes to work very early each morning so I'm the one who's in charge of getting the rest of the family ready for the day. Getting up early is almost always a guarantee that my morning will run smoothly, but for this sleep-deprived mommy sometimes that just isn't an option! Thankfully my kids aren't old enough to be in school yet, so every now and then we're able to have a nice slow morning at home. Most days, however, we're rushing to get out the door to run errands, go to the gym, or go to a play date or the park leaving little time for a nutritious breakfast to keep us all going until it's finally time for lunch. I can't even count the number of times I've skipped breakfast lately, just because I lack the time it takes to prepare a nutritious meal in the morning.



That's where the Carnation Breakfast Essentials® 7-day breakfast challenge comes in! Just one pouch of Carnation Breakfast Essentials® contains all the nutrition your body needs to get started in the morning. It's as easy as stirring it up with your favourite milk and drinking it down (or grab one of their Ready to Drink bottles for an even easier wake-up!), but if you have just a little bit more time the breakfast possibilities are endless.

I was so glad to find the cereal aisle at my local Wal Mart store well stocked with Carnation Breakfast Essentials® powder so I could begin the 7-day breakfast challenge!




Carnation Breakfast Essentials® powder comes in 3 delicious flavours, Chocolate, Strawberry and Vanilla, making your 7-day breakfast challenge even more easy and delicious! That's right, all you have to do is enjoy a nutritious breakfast every day for 7 days and you could be eligible to win some great prizes from Carnation Breakfast Essentials® - stay tuned to the end of this post for the details!


Our 7-day breakfast challenge was a breeze. It's easy to come up with fun ways to get creative with Carnation Breakfast Essentials® powder, but it's even easier to enjoy it all on its own (prepared according to package directions) and it has certainly saved my morning more than a few times! There's nothing worse than getting both kids dressed in all their winter outdoor gear, boots, hats, mittens, and everything else, having your keys in hand about to leave the house, and realizing you forgot to eat breakfast and you won't be home again for at least 4 hours...sound familiar? 


Carnation Breakfast Essentials® to the rescue! It's so easy to grab a Ready to Drink bottle out of the fridge to throw in your diaper bag or purse, and adding some of the Carnation Breakfast Essentials® powder to a mason jar with some milk is just about as easy. Just shake, and drink on the go!

But for those mornings when all you have is 5 minutes, I've got a delicious and nutritious Strawberry Kiwi Smoothie Bowl that you've gotta try! My kids and I enjoyed preparing this delicious breakfast together during our 7-day breakfast challenge, and we enjoyed eating together it even more!!
