Morning Stories with belVita Breakfast Biscuits

belVita Breakfast Biscuits
What's your house like in the morning? Is it a chaotic madhouse or do you run with military precision? I think most people probably find their daily routine falls somewhere in the middle. To help you along here's a few tips that mean you can be out the door five minutes early rather than ten minutes late.
  • When the kids get home after school raid their school bags. Homework and the neverending demands for money and requests for books/outfits/show & tells/cake sales can all be sorted out straight away.
  • Leave school shoes and bags in the same place each night so there isn't a hunt round the house in the morning.
  • I keep school uniform separate from other clothes so it is easy to select and they get it on themselves.

  • Try to walk to school. It's makes better sense for your health and also environmentally and financially. Also you won't be wasting time battling traffic and getting stressed trying to find a parking space.
  • Keep breakfast simple - a full English fry up can be left for your weekend treat.

I've always believed in the importance of eating a good breakfast. An empty or rumbling stomach is no good to work on. I was recently sent a selection of beVita Breakfast Biscuits for us to try. They now come in three ranges – belVita Breakfast Biscuits, Yogurt Crunch and Crunchy. Each comes individually wrapped so they stay fresh or if you are in a rush you can pop them in a bag easily.

I have to admit I was a bit sceptical when I first read the packaging that they are, “the only breakfast biscuits proven to slowly release carbohydrates over four hours as part of a balanced breakfast”. After a round trip of 1.5 miles to walk the kids to nursery and school by mid morning I'm starving. Could some biscuits keep me going until lunch? The simple answer is yes but also they were easy and quick to eat and tasted nice. My daughter did a 5km run on Saturday morning and decided to fuel herself on a packet as well (she naturally went for the Cocoa Yogurt Crunch). All-in-all something different for breakfast which is no fuss and importantly keeps us going until lunchtime.
