#BacktoSc​hool Breakfast for Less with MOM Brands Cereal

Tuesday, September 25, 2012 Posted by Dina N

It's back to school time, and it seems we are spending more on school supplies every year. If you are feeling the pinch like I am, you are not alone. According to a survey of the National Retail Federation, in 2012 the average family with children in grades K-12 will spend $688.62 on their children, up from $603.63 last year.

While $700 is not cheap for most people, school time breakfast does not have to break the bank. We all know that breakfast is the most important meal of the day. Kids learn better when they start the day right - with a balanced, delicious breakfast. On many school mornings, my kids enjoy a bowl of cold cereal with  milk and some fresh fruit. It's easy, quick, and we got the major food groups covered.

MOM Brands offers a variety of cereals that make great back-to-school breakfast options. MOM Brands products include Malt-O-Meal, Three Sisters, Mom's Best and Better Oats instant oatmeal. MOM Brands has high-quality and nutritious cereals at affordable prices. According to information provided by the company, MOM Brands cost 30%t less than competitors. For example, Better Oats costs $1.49 to $1.79 per box.

MOM Brands products are not just easy on the wallet, they’re packed with nutrition. Fortified with essential vitamins and minerals, including folic acid, iron and vitamin C, 85 Malt-O-Meal varieties and all Better Oats flavors qualify for the Whole Grain Stamp from the Whole Grains Council. Additionally, Better Oats’ 23 flavors are made with real fruit and flax.

During the hectic first days of school, my kids enjoyed some Marshmallow Oaties from Three Sisters. This MOM brand is available exclusively at Whole Foods. Just as other Three Sisters cereals, Marshmallow Oaties contains no artificial flavors or preservatives, no hydrogenated oils, and no high fructose corn syrup. The company buys wind-generated electricity credits for all the electricity used to make Three Sisters cereals. These yummy oaties are made with whole grain oats. While the sugar content is a tad higher than what I usually serve for breakfast, the cereal is a hit with my kids.

Whether your breakfast of choice is hot oatmeal or cold cereal, MOM Brands has you covered. In addition, when you buy a bag of Malt-O-Meal or Better Oats cereal in September, MOM Brands will make a food donation to the Minnesota Feeding America® Food Banks. The company has set a goal of donating one million servings - and you can help.

Many thanks to MOM Brands for providing free review products.  This post is not compensated and reflects my personal opinion that may differ from yours.

    Didn't realize about the exclusive ones at Whole Foods. We have tried several of the bagged Malt o Meal cereals and they are quite good.

    I love a company that is willing to give back! I've never heard of this brand nor have I seen it in my local stores? Is it specific to just one store? I now watch my grandchildren on weekdays mornings and this sounds like it would be perfect for our cereal breakfasts.

    I have never heard of it but sounds pretty good. I will ask my mom and see if she's heard of them.

    We are big fans of the Better Oats oatmeal varieties. We'll have to try some of the other options too. Thanks for the review!
