Today’s post is sponsored by Nestlé ®, but my family’s love for their Nesquik chocolate milk is all my own!
The girls drink milk every morning…and every night. That’s two cups a day, seven days a week – that’s A LOT of milk. Ensuring they are getting the right nutrition is my job. During the week breakfast time can be a bit rushed, which is why I enjoy the weekends. The weekends give us a lot more time and flexibility. Not only to eat right, but to let the girls creativity take them on magical adventures.
On weekends I can take my time creating fun breakfast ideas for them – like when I made pancakes made out of eggs and bananas – simply mash the bananas into the eggs, their two favorite foods. Simple and easy recipe to make, and healthy too!
The girls enjoy character-shaped waffles, yogurt, eggs, pancakes, fruit, and even tomatoes with their breakfast. Since we don’t always have time for a nice sit down breakfast during the week, I worry whether they are getting the nutrients they need. Several times a week I kick up their breakfast, making it wholesome, delicious and fun by adding Nesquik chocolate powder. Nesquik adds 7 essential vitamins and minerals, and has 45% less sugar than the leading syrup and no artificial colors or flavors in it. With a cup of Nesquik chocolate milk in one hand and a banana in the other I can feel confident that the girls are getting the iron they need to help with growth and development, along with Vitamin C and 3 essential B vitamins.
These vitamins help support a healthy immune system and help the body make and use energy. Along with Copper – an essential mineral for iron absorption and the formation of red blood cells, and Manganese to support healthy bones, I can send the girls off to school ready to take on the day. With Nesquik Chocolate Powder, the girls start their day in a nutritious way, as part of a balanced breakfast. It also leaves them smiling ear to ear when they head off to school.
Make Breakfast Fun Again with Nesquik Chocolate Milk
Preemie stayed home from school today because she wasn’t feeling 100%, so I took advantage of our one on one time to enjoy a sit down breakfast with her. They grow so fast, and it’s so heart-warming to watch all the new things she does – like serving herself more eggs, yes I was totally taken aback by this little milestone. I always try to add a vegetable to their plates during each meal, while they don’t always eat them, I hope for the best. Today Preemie ate nearly everything I had served – chocolate milk made with Nesquik Chocolate Powder, eggs, tomatoes and bananas! She even served herself a second helping of eggs.
The girls have so much fun together. Allowing them to explore their creativity allows their brains to thrive and grow. Recently I had posted a photo of the girls playing in a really large cardboard box when a friend suggested giving them crayons to draw in/on the box. They had so much fun drawing I had to practically drag them out of the box for dinner that evening. Giving them the freedom to explore their imaginary world can help bring it to reality. By helping kids live out their dreams, we empower them to believe that anything is possible. Could you have imagined anything more fun than an unlimited place to color when you were a kid? Let the future artist in your little one come alive!
Nourishing possibility is as easy as helping your kids start their day off right with Nestlé Nesquik chocolate milk! How do you encourage your child’s creativity through play?
