In my mind I know that breakfast is the most important meal of the day. I make sure that my children start their day off with a healthy breakfast but more often than not I am just drinking coffee for breakfast. I know that is why I am hungry later or get headaches mid-morning at school, so I try to make an effort to eat something for breakfast. My mornings begin so early so I am always looking for something to try that is easy, convenient and nutritious.
During my last trip to Walmart, I found Carnation Breakfast Essentials® and thought this would be a great way to kick start our breakfast eating as a family. They come in a variety of flavors that I know both my children and I would like. I vowed that I would try and eat a healthy breakfast while taking part in their 7-Day Breakfast Challenge.

Our crazy morning are always jammed pack with getting the kids on the bus, packing up backpacks, making sure their lunches are packed as well as getting ready for work in the morning. As a teacher, I am at school so early that often this process falls on my husband to tackle. We started our 7-day Carnation Challenge this past weekend and I made everyone Carnation Breakfast Essentials® Silver Dollar Pancakes to kick this off the right way.
That’s right you do not have to just drink these Carnation Breakfast Essentials® but by using the powdered formula, it is so easy to sneak in nutrients in everyday recipes like these pancakes. Everyone enjoyed these silver dollar pancakes; you should give them a try!
