Back-to-school season is in full swing, and along with it comes busy, hectic morning routines.  But even with those busy mornings, we all still want to make sure our families get a good breakfast to start the day off, right?  Fortunately with the help of REAL® dairy products, there are lots of ways to get a tasty and wholesome breakfast on the table fast.

Enjoy a quick cup of yogurt, or layer up a fruit-and-yogurt parfait the night before so it's ready to grab-and-go.  Overnight oats made with REAL® milk are always quick and convenient in the morning.  Or, go with the old favorite standby ~ a big ol' bowl of cereal ... complete with a generous pouring of milk, of course.

But what's my favorite make-ahead, ready-to-go breakfast?


Like whole wheat waffles, Nutella waffles, and these wonderfully delicious Pumpkin-Apple Waffles ... made with REAL® milk and butter.
