Now that school is in full swing, we make a point to reserve Saturday mornings to being slow and relaxing. The 1st hour is usually spent in the kitchen with my son where he works on a craft project while I make breakfast and enjoy the reading the paper. It’s nice to have one morning with nowhere to go and in no hurry to get out the door.

Carson is especially impatient when it comes to waiting for his breakfast. So on Saturdays I like to have a little craft set up to keep him occupied while I slowly get his meal prepared. This past weekend, I had him make a paper hot chocolate cup. He finished just as breakfast was on the table!

Supplies needed: 
3 sheets of construction paper (any color)
glue
scissors
mini marshmallows

Directions: 
  1. Using one sheet of construction paper, cut out a square to be used as the cup and a “C” for the handle. With separate piece of construction paper, cut out an oval to be the hot chocolate. 
  2. Then cut out several squiggly lines for the steam. 
  3. Glue on the handle and oval paper. 
  4. Then glue on the steam. 
  5. Finally add a several dots of glue on top of the cup and place on the marshmallows.
It only takes a few minutes to whip up a nutrient rich, delicious breakfast for your family. Pour a glass of milk, open up a cup of Del Monte Fruit & Veggie Fusions and toast a Lender’s Bagel. This breakfast is something that everyone can enjoy and is packed with protein, carbohydrates and vitamin C. Building a better breakfast is simple and easy when you keep these items stocked in the fridge.
We all know that childhood should be filled with playing, learning and growing. But many children do not have basic staples such as milk. More that 46 million Americans (including 12 million kids) rely on Feeding America food banks each year. Milk is the most requested, but is the least donated item which means children are missing out on the essential nutrients and protein that milk supplies. I know how much my little guy loves his milk and it’s heartbreaking knowing that kids in our own neighborhood are going without simple necessities.
Milk has 9 essential nutrients and 8 grams of protein per 8 oz serving that can ensure kids have the potential to play, learn and grow. Join Feeding America in The Great American Milk Drive to help deliver milk to hungry children and families in need.
You can help feed a child when shopping at Walmart and purchasing 1 or more of these products. Visit Feeding America to learn more and support The Great American Milk Drive.
