Back-to-school breakfasts can be quite a challenge, as any mom will tell you. My biggest problem has always been getting my groggy kids interested in eating at such an early hour. It's a long time until lunch, after all, and low-blood sugar never helped anybody learn how to do fractions or diagram sentences!
That's why I love these Happy Face Waffles from Dash. Kids can help with preparation for a little first thing in the morning fun, and because they're made with whole grains, fruits, and nuts, they're way more nutritious than any plain old bowl of cereal.
