Mornings are a struggle in our house. I have never been, and will never be, a morning person. That means every minute counts, and there is no room for error. As soon as I crawl out of bed, it’s game on. I know exactly how much time I have for the important stuff (brushing my teeth, showering, etc.) and the not-so-important stuff (checking my social media accounts and making the bed!).

It used to be that I considered eating breakfast to be in the not-so-important stuff category. My idea of breakfast was a diet pop and cheese puffs. Now that I’m older and wiser, I’ve come to terms that eating breakfast needs to fall into the important stuff category. Not only for my health, but to also show my daughter the value in starting her day off right.

Yoplait yogurt 8 pack

She doesn’t realize it, but she’s been getting 20% of the daily calcium she needs for strong bones and teeth, by eating her favorite Yoplait yogurt, Orange Creme. Getting enough calcium in our diets has always been a challenge, and this makes obtaining that goal a bit easier. Yoplait yogurt comes in a convenient 8-pack at Walmart, and there is no prep work. No cooking, making, combining or blending! In the mornings when time is of the essence, it literally takes 5 minutes for her to eat breakfast.

That means that I have a few minutes after she gets on the bus to combine those important and not-so important things. Instead of rushing out the door with nothing in my stomach, I have time to catch up on my favorite blogs while eating a real breakfast. However, I still haven’t found time to make the bed…

  1. I keep Yoplait on hand for breakfast when we’re rushed. I like to throw a little granola in mine.

    We go through tons of Yoplait in our house. We love yogurt ad it’s the only brand I buy!

  3. I have to fill my fridge with those. We are chronically late, so this would be perfect for us.

  4. Pam Wattenbarger says:

    I love yogurt and eat it for breakfast almost every day. Yoplait is one of my favorite brands.

  5. Yogurt is the healthiest breakfast option when you don’t have time to make something on the stove or on the oven. We love Yoplait, and always have it in stock. My family’s mornings are always rushed, because we all have different commitments to attend to. We are running around like ducks with their tails on fire. LOL.

    Oh these look yummy! I am a huge yogurt fan so I bet I will become obsessed with these.

  7. I love Yoplait yogurt! So many yummy flavors!

  8. I’m not sure who loves Yoplait yogurt more; me or the kids. I typically enjoy them as a mid-morning snack after my workout.

    These are great! Sometimes I am skipping breakfast because it’s just busy doing stuff. I would love to try some.

    • I hear ya! I’m terrible at skipping breakfast, even though I know it’s important and reduces how much I snack during the day.

  13. My children eat yogurt every morning! Yoplait is definitely one of our favorites!

  14. I have a ton of Yoplait in my fridge right now. By far my favorite flavor and consistency when it comes to yogurt.

  15. I always have Yoplait in the ‘fridge. I haven’t tried many outside of my three faves, but I’m willing to expand. 😉

    I love Yoplait and all of their delicious flavors. I often freeze them for an afternoon snack.
