As a mother, I hardly ever get the time to sit down and eat breakfast at the table with my family. I am usually doing all of the above. However the beauty of BelVita is that you can eat them on the go and, thanks to their delicious new chocolate flavour, get your daily chocolate fix too.
My real favourite is the fruit and fibre flavour. It really is luxury to sit down and eat something without having to get up 32 times for juice or another spoon because the first 16
fell were thrown on the floor.
The only trouble is, it is so tempting to put your feet up and relax with your coffee and BelVita biscuits that if you’re not careful, it’s noon and time to pick Boo up and get back on the rush train without having done anything.
Relax and grab a BelVita. It’s the only way us mums have any chance of breakfast.
