My favorite new ad is the Wal-mart ad I heard this morning. It was reminding me that a fast food breakfast costs $5.00 per person a day but a healthy breakfast with cereal and milk purchased at Wal-mart is just 50 cents per person a day. So, your family of 4 can save almost $900 a year if they have a breakfast like this just once a week! I figured it out... they are right!
Okay... did I make you feel guilty? I made me feel guilty! (Sorry!) But then I remember that my favorite Maya Angelo quote is "I did the best I could and when I knew better I did better."
So here is breakfast 101-1: Make it a goal to eat breakfast at home with your child everyday because:
- Your child will benefit with better performance at school
- Though it means getting up earlier, the emotional start to the day as you take time to connect will be better too. (See All About Mornings - Waking up 101)
- You will save a ton of money which you can use for charity or to pay down debt.
- You will benefit personally at work , by lowering your real age (http://www.realage.com/) and will be modelling great healthy habits for your child(ren).
Take care, Jill :)
