Ziploc Works for Me in the Morning

Ziploc Twist 'n Loc - Containers & Lids, Small - 3 eaLittle Bean has a strange appetite and breakfast is no exception. Sometimes she’s ravenous, other times she just nibbles. I got tired of pouring her a bowl of cereal in the morning, only to have her abandon her mighty men to soak up the milk and swell to gargantuan proportions. Instead I’ve come up with a painless way to handle breakfast time. The night before, I fill a ziploc twist n’ loc, (which are shaped like little bowls too!), with her cereal and screw the lid back on. When she gets up, we get her a sippy cup of milk and open the container. The container acts like a prepackaged single serving, which is convenient when you can’t think straight after getting out of bed (I am really not a morning person!). She’s then free to munch what she feels like eating, with no wasted soggy cereal. Twist the lid back on and save the rest for later!

I know this isn’t an ingenious, earth-shattering idea, but it does keep me sane!

We do this too. These are also great for mornings where no one gets out of bed on time and you have to have breakfast-in-the-backseat.

now we need to find a way to have little bean get the milk herself.

That’s a great idea! We too have the problem of soggy uneaten cereal. Who says cereal has to be eaten with milk on top?!
PS Thanks for the bedtime book suggestion 🙂 I love Sandra Boynton books!

This is a great idea. I do fix my son a bowl of cereal and a cup of milk separately, but I hadn’t thought of putting it in a container the night before. I’m all about doing stuff the night before so I can be on aut0-pilot until I’ve had some coffee!

As a fellow “not morning person” I say whatever works to get you through your morning is brilliant. My kids are lucky they even get a hello, let alone breakfast 🙂
