Back to School Tips + No Fuss Breakfast Pudding.

It’s always hard for me to think of school when it’s still warm outside and the beach is calling…

But, another school season is upon us.  That means readjusting our schedules  and getting back into a routine.  I know how hectic mornings can be, so here are some tips to make things a bit smoother for those Back-To-School days.

Have kids pick out their own clothes and set them out the night before.  That includes socks and underwear –  then there is no last minute struggle to find the “perfect” outfit.  It doesn’t matter if colors clash or things don’t match.  If your child is happy and excited to be wearing the outfit…it’s a winner.

Keep a box of extra scrunchies, headbands, change, pencils, crayons and emergency “supplies” near the door so it will be easy to locate a needed item on the way out.

Have lunches/backpacks prepared the night before as well.  Sandwiches will keep just fine in a plastic container in the fridge.  You can cut up fruits/vegs the night before and put them in zipper bags.  They will be fresh and delicious the next day.

Here’s a recipe for some amazing CHOCOLATE BREAKFAST PUDDING you make the night before as well.  The kids can mix this up themselves once you show them how.  It really is best to let it blend overnight, so you get the full flavor.
