|Try Belvita Breakfast Biscuits crushed up with fresh fruit and yogurt – SO GOOD! Or spread a little ricotta on top of them and add a few chopped strawberries. I’m sure even Michelle Bridges would approve!|
So how can Belvita Breakfast Biscuits help:
- They are EASY!! They come in handy little ready-to-go packs of 4 biscuits.
- They are called “biscuits”. Anything that is called a biscuit get my kids attention – even when they’re healthy!
- They are good for you!! Each biscuit contains 5 wholegrains (wheat, rye, spelt, barley and oats), they’re low in GI, contain NO nasties and are a great source of fibre.
- They are scientifically proven to provide 4 hours of sustained energy release! That means that there is no whingy “mum I’m hungry” until at least morning tea and possibly even lunch time! This is particularly good for Master J at school because his concentration really dips when he is hungry.
- Last but not least – they’re YUMMY and come in 4 awesome flavours.
|Miss H had the BEST time with the lovely Maria and made a very cute grass head called “Rachel”. She also LOVED the Belvita Biscuits and told me she wants them everyday.|
Just for a bit of fun, Belvita have joined up with 97.3FM for a Belvita Mumathlon. If you’re a mum who is AWESOME at multi-tasking and runs a mumathlon every morning then this is for you!

Go on – you know you want to!!!! It could be fun!
Lastly I would really like to thank Jess at MWWAH for our invitation to this fabulous breakfast, AMPR for organising it, the lovely Melanie McGrice (who I will be interviewing soon for her take on ‘the importance of breakfast) and of course Belvita for their delicious breakfast.

I love Belvita biccies. They were my staple in the early days of breastfeeding when I needed a quick snack. Now we always have them on hand because Spouse loves them too. Looks like you had a great morning! I’m jealous!! Mez xx
It was lovely – I forget how beautiful the Botanical Gardens are. I really should visit more often x
Came on over from Salz linky – LOVE the idea of crushed up biscuits in yoghurt with fruit, will definately have to give that a try for the kidlets. I’m just like you – I don’t even try to have breakfast till after the school run, there is just too much to do and ever after the run its still touch and go as to whether the babies will give me the time for brekky
Glad I’m not the only one operating in chaos in the mornings!! I havent had time to do the crushed biscuit thing in the morning but I gave it to the kids the other evening for pudding and they loved it! x
I only have time to have breakfast after I drop the kids off at school. You got that right. That’s only if i remember too. Sometimes it’s just a cup of tea. Then lunch is skipped usually. No wonder I don;t have enough energy to run after the little kids. These biscuits sound like a great idea. I will have to give them a try. Even for the school kids on days when we are running short on time they can have these on the way to school.
Thanks for linking up with The Wednesday Review linky on my blog. 😀
If only the skipping meals would help with my dieting (sadly not, lol). See you on Sunday xx
Your right I am always last on the list of the breakfast rush. I often dont get it to 9.30 and by then I am starving. Looks like everyone had a lovely morning. Will have to keep an eye out for these in the shops.
