5 Quick and Easy On the Go Breakfast Ideas

Thank you to Malt-O-Meal® for sponsoring today’s post and reminding us that mornings can be a breeze with On the Go Breakfast Ideas! All opinions are 100% my own.

My mornings are a real drag. Trying to get the girls to school on time is like mission impossible. For starters it’s really my fault, I’m just not a morning person. If I could sleep in late every day I totally would. However, I do understand the importance of making sure the girls eat something in the morning to get their day started off on the right foot – even if their shoes are on the wrong feet. These 5 quick and easy on the go breakfast ideas will hopefully help you get out the door a little faster on slower mornings.

5 Quick and Easy On the Go Breakfast Ideas

The struggle is real. Each and every single morning. When I serve the girls breakfast I always put it in a container they can easily take with them. Even though they usually have plenty of time to eat their breakfast, some days are a bit more rushed than others. Serving their breakfast in a disposable cup or ziploc bag allows them to just take their breakfast with them and continue eating it in the car on the ride to preschool. Some of their – and my, favorite quick and easy on the go breakfast idea options are:

  1. Cereal in a disposable cup or ziploc bag (optional: sippy cup of milk)
  2. Sliced fruit or a banana
  3. Yogurt smoothie or parfait
  4. Waffles
  5. Granola bar

 

The girls love the Malt-O-Meal® Berry Colossal Crunch. The Crunch. The Flavor. I love it too because it is real delicious and has real value with flavor in every bite. You can easily find a flavor or two or 34 that you’ll love because Malt-O-Meal® brand cereals come in 34 delicious varieties, so there’s something for every taste bud in the family. Finding them is easy at many of your local supermarkets, including Walmart and Target, which lends to making breakfast easy on your budget!

  • Sometimes you have to just go – go -go. We are big on waffles (no syrup!) or even Clif Bars and fruit.

  • Malt-o-Meal is a great alternative to the more expensive cereals. My teenage daughter brings some to school in a baggie as a snack.
