We received a couple of Breakfast Breaks to try out recently. They are little cardboard boxes that contain a complete morning meal to go– a single serving of cereal in its own bowl, a Minute Maid apple juice box and a snack (Fruit & Grain bar, raisins or graham crackers), plus a spoon, napkin and moist towelette.
The Breakfast Breaks we sampled contained Cinnamon Toast Crunch and Honey Nut Cheerios, both of which Roo gobbled up dry while slurping down the apple juice. I wish there was some way milk could be packaged with the cereal to add even more nutrition. She wasn't thrilled with the Fruit & Grain bars so they were left to me. (Yummy, I could eat my own weight in those things, which probably would negate any positive effects of the whole grain.) The boxes are convenient for grabbing on the way out of the house, but the bowl shape isn't very toddler-friendly. If Roo had eaten hers in the car, there would be cereal in every nook and cranny because the lightweight plastic bowl tipped over pretty easily. Breakfast Breaks are more appropriate for an older child or tween. I might get them for specific occasions (road trip would be ideal) because they do take up a lot of space in the pantry and they do duplicate items that you probably already stock in larger boxes– i.e. cereal or juice boxes.
If your breakfast-phobic child is really into Lunchables, Breakfast Breaks would be perfect for your family!
