Kellogg's Back To School PJ Party

This past Saturday over 30 moms came out with their kids and some dads to enjoy breakfast on us, courtesy of Kellogg's. They got to sit back (as much as the kids let them) and let momstown do the prep work. And to make things even easier for them, we made it a pajama party, so moms didn't even have to change their kids in the morning (well diapers may have needed a changing). Even lots of moms came out to party in the pj's!

The kids ran around and played while us mamas sat back, relaxed and enjoyed our coffee and tea.

We started off the party will some fun discussions on our crazy morning routines and learning the importance of ensuring we all eat breakfast, including moms. I myself am terrible for skipping breakfast because I'm so focused on the kids that I forget to take care of myself. This bad habit has got to stop. One fun icebreaker questions was "did you ever leave the house and realized you are still in your slippers?" Glad to know I'm not the only one that this has happened too!

Everyone got to enjoy a variety of different cereal that Kellogg's sent. Many of us parents were reminiscing about the good old days when we ate Fruit Loops and Frosted Flakes. We have all tended to shift to 'adult' cereal, such as Kellogg's Special K, Mini Wheats, All Bran or Raisin Bran. I ate my bowl of Frosted Flakes rather quickly. We also had yogurt and lots of different fruit available.

Enjoying her apple! Check out her adorable silky pajamas. I don't even own pajamas that fancy! Lucky little girl!

Our party wasn't just about eating. We talked about nutrition, the facts about various breakfast food choices, and learned some interesting stuff. Many of us did not know that 'cereal contains less sodium than many popular breakfast items, including one slice of whole wheat toast, one croissant, one medium biscuit, one English muffin, and half a bagel.'

Every mom is looking for a fast and simple way to get breakfast on the table in the morning! Kellogg's cereal answers all the demands, and meets the nutritional needs of our growing kids. It was also convenient to have the cereals on hand to check out the nutritional value for themselves. We often don't have the time in the grocery store to read the labels. This breakfast provided the kids with a chance to sit down and try the food, and gave mom a moment to check out the labels.

What's a party without a prize! Congratulations Candis for winning our awesome prize loaded with cereal and fun stuff from Kellogg's. 

 What's a party without loot bags. Every family got to take home a gift bag from Kellogg's!

 We had a great time! It was nice to get together and enjoy breakfast with our momstown mama friends!
