1 in 5 kids go without breakfast every day. That number is staggering.
While I have to say that for me personally, breakfast has always been my least favorite meal of the day. However, I couldn’t imagine sending my kids out the door without a morning meal. My parents would have never done that, either, with me or my brother growing up, though times were sometimes tough. We’d have toast if nothing else. While it’s not always the healthiest choice, it’s always something. I know they need that kick of fuel to energize their day. I was lucky, as are my kids, because many children don’t even have that.
Which is where Kellogg’s comes in. The world’s leading producer of cereal, along with celebrity dad and actor Taye Diggs, are doing their part to help share breakfast with children in need. Along with in-school breakfast partner Action For Healthy Kids®, Kellogg’s and Diggs are making it their mission to show families how a wholesome breakfast can help kids reach their full potential every day. This week has also been declared National Breakfast Week, thus making it the perfect opportunity to lend a helping hand. Or a bowl and spoon might be more appropriate.
And you can do your part to share breakfast, too. It’s very simple. Just retweet the following message:

You can also share the public service announcement with your friends, share the message on Facebook, or share and repin on Pinterest. Each time you share, Kellogg will donate the monetary equivalent of a school breakfast shared.
I participated in a campaign on behalf of Mom Central Consulting for Kellogg’s. I received a product sample as well as a promotional item as a thank-you for participating.
