5 Reasons Kids Love Food on a Stick

Jimmy Dean Pancake and Sausage on a Stick

We all know breakfast is the most important meal of the day, but did you know it can also be the most fun? As moms, we try our best to make sure our kids start the day out right, and I can’t think of a better way of doing that than transforming breakfast from a frantic must-do into something everyone looks forward to. 

Try the simple trick of giving your kids breakfast on a stick and watch how it helps the whole family start the day with a laugh instead of a groan. Even on the most hectic mornings, there’s always time to serve up a smile - something even the pickiest eater will love.


Here are 5 more reasons kids can't resist food on a stick: 

1. Because kids love to be self-sufficient. When breakfast comes on a stick, they can serve themselves AND clean up afterwards!

2. Because it reminds us of our best summer memories: going camping, visiting a carnival, strolling along the boardwalk, or hosting a backyard barbecue. Food on a stick is what good times are made of.

3. Because forks are totally overrated. Licking off sticky fingers is part of what makes being a kid so awesome. Let them enjoy it while they can!

4. Because lip-syncing their favorite tunes into a Pancakes and Sausage on a Stick"microphone" (between bites, natch) will put everyone in a good mood - including you! Crank up the music while you finish packing the kids' lunches, pleased with how much time their easy breakfast has saved you.

5. Because if you’re running late in the morning, food on a stick travels much better than a bowl of cereal and milk. That’s just science.
