Back To School – Make Mornings Easy With Lance Quick Starts

lance snacksWe get it, mornings can be rough, especially at the start of a fresh school year. Some mornings when it feels like we just on time it’s nice to have easy breakfast options to take on the go. That’s why new Lance Quick Starts are the perfect on-the-go way to jump start our day. We are happy to partner with Lance Quick Starts on this post.

Our days start early and it’s important that even when we are rushed that our girls start their day right. Having a portable breakfast to take on these busy days makes all the difference.
lance snacksThese breakfast biscuit sandwiches are made with two baked crackers and a delicious filling in the middle. Lance Quick Starts are available in eight sweet and savory flavors. Each of our kids have found the ones they like best and with so many delicious varieties to choose from you can’t go wrong. lance snacks
After the kiddos head off to school I head to the gym or hit our local running trails for a workout. I know I need to eat breakfast but with the rush from the morning I often find myself heading off without eating. Lance Quick Starts are a great option for busy and active moms like me and I have to say they really do taste delicious! My favorite is the Everything Bagel! Lance Quick StartsWith 3 grams of protein, 13 grams of Whole Grains, a good source of B-Vitamins and fiber, Quick Starts are a great tasting & nutritious way to fuel you through the morning.

Please visit the Lance website to learn more and to find the new Lance Quick Starts in a store near you. You’ll also find savings and more information on all your favorite Lance products.

  2. tallcapp on September 18, 2015 at 8:56 pm

    Make up breakfast in a slow cooker overnight and prepare lunch boxes the night before as well.



  3. Laurie Emerson on September 18, 2015 at 8:14 pm

    My best tip is to get everything you possibly can ready the night before. I usually set the table and make sure that backpacks are set right next to their seats at the table.



  4. timothy on September 18, 2015 at 7:50 pm

    Always try to prepares as much the night before. What will take a few minutes the night before might take longer in the morning when everything is rush rush.

    my biggest advice would be to keep a routine so everyone knows what to expect



  7. Janine H on September 18, 2015 at 1:41 pm

    Make a big pot of oatmeal on Monday, and reheat it for the next few breakfasts



  8. Stephanie Larison on September 18, 2015 at 9:10 am

    Prepare all the lunches the night before so you’re not stressed and rushing everything in the morning.



  9. Claire on September 18, 2015 at 4:58 am

    Set everything out the night before, with the kids’ help of course.



  10. Mary Beth Elderton on September 18, 2015 at 4:49 am

    Routine. Routine. Routine. Consistency and routine are the best way to get through most things from school/work mornings to potty training to homework to housework. Having a set and consistent routine also helps to leave open time for creativity.



  11. Julie Lundstrom on September 18, 2015 at 3:52 am

    Make sure to help yourself…drink a protein shake in the morning for some energy.



  18. Jennifer Tilson on September 17, 2015 at 3:08 pm

    My best tip is to allow for extra time. I already do what many moms do and prepare lunches and get clothes ready the night before. But, there always seems to be bumps that make my kids run behind.



  19. DanielM on September 17, 2015 at 2:49 pm

    You can help make a morning less hectic by planning ahead the night before. Set out the next days clothes, pack lunches, set up the automatic coffee make setting. The more you get done the night before the less you have to do in the morning.



  26. Lisa V. on September 16, 2015 at 1:52 pm

    Get everything ready the night before and leave backpacks by the door so they are not forgotten.



  31. WHITNEY on September 14, 2015 at 4:51 pm

    It is a lot easier to get through the morning if you pack lunches the evening before!

  36. g.b. on September 13, 2015 at 2:51 pm

    Hi. You did a give-away last December for the Zum Zum Balance bike. I can not comment on that post, so I am leaving the comment I would have left there on this post instead…

    I’m curious if Shannon F. ever gother give-away prize for this bike. I also won the bike on a different blog which was also doing a give-away. They put me in contact with Zum Zum people to make arrangements for receiving the bike. After months and months of being promised the bike would be sent, I was finally ignored when writing to ask when to expect it. Does anyone know what has happened with this company? Have searched the internet and they seem to have gone off the grid. Web site isn’t even loading when I click on it from their facebook page. Strange. Wondering if anyone else knows anything.

    I prep as much as I can the night before. Lay out clothes for the next day, make sure their backpacks are loaded and where they belong. I do some lunch prep on the weekends, like chopping and portioning veggies/fruit so I can just grab them and throw them in.



  57. Madonna on September 10, 2015 at 12:45 pm

    Organization is key. Homework is done and in the bookbag which is by the door. Clothes are laid out for the next morning and lunch is packed and in the fridge.

    Make sure you put everything out the night before so you’re not trying to find everything in the morning
