Kix - Review and Giveaway

Our mornings are busy!! And our family regularly grabs a box of cereal for a quick, yummy and beneficial breakfast!

I was soo excited to receive a "Kid Tested, Mother Approved" kit with a box of Kix and a box of Honey Kix as well as some smart goodies for the kids;) I was excited because I really wanted to try out the Honey Kix since I"m a person who usually sticks with what I know THE FAM will like;)

The Honey Kix were delicious, just like the originial;) Just the right amount of sweetness for a bowl of cereal and a dry snack later in the day!!! And what I enjoyed even more was the long list of vitamins and minerals included in each bowl! I also liked the ingredients.... simple and readable;) And what isn't in the box, like high-fructose corn syrup, artificial colors or flavors, or saturated fat!!!

The box quickly disappeared off our shelf and I wish I could say it was only because of the kids :)

GET YOUR OWN!!
You can get your own Kix at the grocery store:)

WIN YOUR OWN!
! We have an awesome "Kid Tested, Mother Approved!" prize pack for a SIMPLE reader. It contains a 24-piece counting-themed floor puzzle, fun learn-to-count flashcards, a sippy cup, a portable snack container and a box each of Original Kix and Honey Kix cereals. So much fun:)

  1. I get up and get dressed asap. This way, I know I'm gonna be up and dressed before/when the baby wakes up and I'm not super comfy in my pj's so I won't get sleepy and go lay down again. I get more done that way.

  2. As a full time working mom of 2 toddlers my mornings are BUSY! To get my kids moving we march, hop or skip to our activities. I let them choose and we all end up smiling in the end.

  3. Coffee! Well really it's getting up and getting in a quick workout before my crazy day starts. I feel better and seem to handle the stress of a 4 year old and pregnancy better with an early morning workout!

  7. I plan plan plan the night before! As hard and difficult as this sounds to accomplish, it helps SO much to set outfits out the night before, have a list of what is going on, and what needs to be done the following day! Thanks for this great giveaway :)

  23. make most of my daughter's lunch the night before and they have to have their backpacks by the door with every thing they need before they get dessert the night before.

  24. My husband leaves much earlier than my 3-yr-old and I do, so I'm alone for the morning scramble. Things work much better if I set out our clothes for the day and have lunches packed and ready to go out the door.

  31. I get the older kiddos breakfast usually while the baby is still sleeping. Then while they are eating I get my breakfast and the baby usually wakes up at this time. I feed her and then while I eat she has some solids. After the older kiddos go to school I put LO in her activity center outside my shower, then she plays while I shower and get dressed.

  41. We pick out clothes and lay everything out the night before. And we keep breakfast foods cooked in the freezer, like pancakes or waffles. My son loves having something hot in the am. (But he loves cereal at lunch.)
