We all know that breakfast is the most important part of the day. I also think that friends are one of the most important parts of a great life. My friends are my everything. I may not always agree with them but I love them, cherish them and admire them for all they have accomplished! One of my near and dear sent her twins off to Kindergarten this year and, though she thought it would be a breeze, tears fell from her face. But as she gets into the routine of working from home and finds out that the days are shorter then they seem, I know she is also trying to take better care of her. I also know that she has a hard time, like most of us busy moms, fitting breakfast into the schedule. Frozen waffles for the kids and often nothing for herself! For a few weeks I have wanted to take her a Build a Better Breakfast Kit that includes items both she and her twins can enjoy for breakfast with ease. Today is the day. I have stocked it full of everything from Del Monte Fruit & Veggie Fusions to Great Value Milk to Lender’s Bagels and beyond. Adding some super cute bowls and a fun coffee cup from my shopping trip to Walmart just for her completes the kit and will, hopefully, help her enjoy breakfast more often as well as giving her kids some other options for a great day at school!
Now there is an ulterior motive to showing you guys this gift to a friend. Even though I did a build a better breakfast kit focused on mom, I also included some great things for her kids. Like a gallon of Great Value milk. There are kids all over the world who don’t get the milk that they need. Childhood should be filled with playing, learning and growing. But for many children who face hunger, even basic staples like milk – and the nutrients that help power childhood activities – are missing. This touches me on so many levels as I never had much to eat in my early childhood. Now, you and I can help feed a childhood! By purchasing 1 or more of these products I have highlighted in my kit, you are helping Feeding America provide nutrient- rich milk to kids and families in need.

While food banks provide critically needed nourishment – including milk – to millions of Americans, it can be difficult to meet demand. On average, food banks are only able to provide the equivalent of less than one gallon of milk per person per year.
So while purchasing items for you, your family or for a friend, make sure you include some products that can also help the more than 46 million Americans – including 12 million children – who rely on Feeding America food banks each year. Milk is one of the most requested, but least donated items at food banks, meaning children in need are missing out on the essential nutrients, including high-quality protein, it supplies.
Aside from the gallon of milk, I also wanted to include a vegetable and a fruit that I knew my neighbor would love and that her kids would benefit from too! You would never know with the clean and light taste of the Del Monte Fruit & Veggie Fusions that the veggies are in the juice! You may also be surprised to know that Del Monte Fruit & Veggie Fusions is the only fruit cup product that provides 1 serving of fruits and veggies in a single cup. I mean, how great is this? When the kids open their lunches and see the flavor they picked out the night before in their lunchbox, it will encourage them to actually eat them! Keep them cold for the best flavor and get your kids involved in choosing their favorites for their own lunch! But set a few aside for you too! Because these are really, really good! Look for specially marked Del Monte Fruit & Veggie Fusions packages on shelf at Walmart for valuable coupons for Del Monte and Lenders products.

Along with the milk and the Del Monte Fruit & Veggie Fusions, I added some Blueberry Lender’s Bagels. Easy to pop in the toaster for her and her kids, the soft and delicious flavor is fun to eat too! Nutritionals need to be a big part of what actually makes this a better breakfast. The combination of milk/bagels/fruit cups give kids and adults protein, carbohydrates, vitamin C and other things that they won’t get with other choices. These 3 products are just BETTER TOGETHER!
With this in mind, my Build a Better Breakfast kit is fun and easy! It includes Great Value Milk, DelMonte Fruit & Veggies Fusions, Lender’s Bagels, some cute bowls, spoons, a personality coffee cup, some Great Value Cream Cheese, some granola cereal I put in a container and a refrigerated bag to keep it all cool! Breakfast for at least 3 – 4 days for her whole family!
When you buy Lender’s Bagels at Walmart between 8/29-9/30, a donation will be made to the Great American Milk Drive to provide milk to local families in need.
My friend was really grateful and enjoyed her Build a Better Breakfast kit. Adding some cute bowls and a coffee cup for her just made it that much more fun! She is already planning a well-rounded and delicious breakfast for her twins tomorrow as well as putting aside some Del Monte Fruit & Veggie Fusions to add to their lunch boxes! I am glad I did it and I learned a lot about a well-rounded breakfast in the process!
Now, you can help feed a childhood when you shop at Walmart – by purchasing 1 or more of these products, you are helping Feeding America provide nutrient- rich milk to kids and families in need. Visit http://cbi.as/54hdj to learn more.
