The Super-Easy Way to Help Fuel Your Kids for an Amazing Day

By Leah Maxwell

Getting kids to eat at any time of day can be a challenge, but getting them to eat breakfast on mornings when you’re also trying to make sure everyone’s dressed and packed and more or less presentable to the outside world, well . . . you might as well ask your pet fish to sit nicely at the breakfast table with fork and knife in hand (er, fin). Lucky for you, Jimmy Dean has fulfilled your family-breakfast dreams with a fast, tasty, and fun food that will get your kids out the door with satisfied tummies and smiles on their faces. Here are three reasons why Jimmy Dean’s Pancakes & Sausage on a Stick will make breakfast awesome:


It’s fast! You can zap Pancakes & Sausage on a Stick in the microwave in less than a minute and practically send your kids on their way, breakfast in one hand, book reports in the other. Having your kids eat a delicious, satisfying start to their day while walking or driving to school may not be ideal, but hey, neither is parenthood. You’re a busy parent; you can use this shortcut.

It’s fun – and yummy! Remember: Food isn’t fuel if your kids leave it on the plate, and every mom knows the best way to get kids to do what you want is to make it fun for them. Pancakes & Sausage on a Stick are fun to eat, and your kids will love getting to choose their favorite pancake flavor: Original, Blueberry, or French Toast, each wrapped around a savory sausage link. Yum! Serve with a glass of milk or orange juice and a bit of syrup for dipping and you’re the hero of the day.

It’s mom-friendly! Think about what it takes to make pancakes and sausage the old-fashioned way: mixing bowl, spatula, griddle, plates, forks, a list of ingredients, and an industrial dishwasher. Now, compare that hassle to the ease of Pancakes & Sausage on a Stick. You can make enough for the whole family lickety-split! And with six grams of protein per serving and no trans fats, you can feel good about sending your kid out into the world.
