In my house, we appreciate having a variety of options for our morning meal (which we NEVER skip!). Depending on how much time we have on a weekday morning, we go with anything from cereal to pancakes and scrambled eggs.
Some mornings we really are in a bit of a rush, though (on rare occasions, Darah will sleep in until about 30 minutes before we have to leave the house….the mad rush is worth the extra quiet as Tim and I get ready!). On days like this, we need something fast, but I’m not interested in reaching for something like a Pop Tart (ok, I AM interested because they taste like candy, but I’m not going to choose it!).
Kraft has just come out with a brand new breakfast item that has been terrific for these kind of days. It’s called belVita, and it is a package of breakfast biscuits that you can eat at your table, in your car or even at your desk. They come in three great flavors: blueberry, apple cinnamon and golden oat. Blueberry is my personal favorite, though I would purchase any of these flavors, because they are all quite good.
Each package of belVita breakfast biscuits is packed with 18-20 grams of whole grains. They are also a good source of fiber and B vitamins. When paired with a piece of fruit and a serving of dairy they make for a balanced breakfast.
What I find interesting about this product is the science behind it. It has been specially developed to release carbohydrates regularly and continuously throughout the morning so that you receive sustained energy. Pretty cool, huh?
I think belVita biscuits are delicious and very convenient. And I love that they are good for you, too! They don’t have any high fructose corn syrup and no partially hydrogenated oils. Look for them in the cracker/cookie aisle of your favorite grocery store!
Win it!: One lucky Stuff Parents Need reader will win 3 boxes of belVita breakfast biscuits (one of each flavor).
