Breakfastbreaks1Sebastian, my eight year old son, ripped through our sample Breakfast Break packages like there was no tomorrow.

Inside Breakfast Breaks boxes, parents will find the same cereal, fruit bar, and juice that can be purchased off the grocery store shelf (a box of cereal or pack of juice boxes for example) but at the cost of a higher price tag.  Is the higher price worth it?  That is a good question. I think it is worth it for a family whose children eat breakfast at school or on their own at home before school, but for those of us who stay at home with our children, there is no need to buy Breakfast Breaks packages.  Breakfast Breaks do provide a well balanced meal which is imperative for good brain function especially in younger children. If I wasn’t able to give Sebastian or Madelyn a healthy breakfast in the morning, I would definitely consider buying Breakfast Breaks for them.

While Breakfast Breaks as a whole provide children with 25% or more of several key nutritional ingredients, there are a few set backs that I hope they will consider improving on for the next go around including completely omitting the saturated fats which is at a low average of 1g, but still there, and the high fructose corn syrup. I know the products in Breakfast Breaks have been around for years and are loved by millions but it would be nice if East Side Entree’s would strive to provide children with products that don’t have these un-necessary ingredients.

I am really torn on this product. It has its benefits which include providing kids with a complete meal but I am a believer in buying in bulk and I love Zip Lock bags in which I can portion out cereal, etc.. for Sebastian to take to school if needed.

Overall, I would recommend Breakfast Breaks for children who eat breakfast at school and for younger children whose parents might not provide them with a complete nutritional breakfast meal.
