Breakfast-on-the-go help from Quaker

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of Quaker Oats for SocialSpark. All opinions are 100% mine.

I admit it.  I'm horrible at eating breakfast.  There are all these doctors and studies saying it is the most important part of the day, it jump starts your metabolism, yada yada yada.  But in the mornings I'm tired.  I'm getting kids up and dressed.  I'm not some Holly Homemaker who is going to make bacon and quiche and sausage and fresh fruit cups and bagels.  

Enter the Quaker Soft Baked Bar.  I saw a commercial for these and immediately wanted to try one. Have you tried them yet?  
They have Cinnamon Pecan

Since I generally don't care for banana flavored things, I'm thinking the Cinnamon Pecan Quaker Soft Baked Bar will be my favorite.  They even suggest warming them up in the microwave.  I don't know about that--I may eat the whole box in one sitting!

Which Occupants of my House will eat these?
Let's take a look at the cast of characters around here.
Me.  We've established that I want to try the Cinnamon Pecan and may need to be restrained from eating an entire box.
Oldest Son.  He's a picky little booger with some very strong preferences regarding texture.  He may or may not be able to be tempted/coaxed/bribed into this.  It is something *new* to him afterall and heaven forbid we do new foods.  ;-)
Youngest Son.  This guy is 2.  He likes generally everything you offer him.  And he LOVES oatmeal. I can see him liking either flavor of these bars.
Husband.  He will definitely try them!  He doesn't usually eat before heading out the door for work (because I'm not Holly Homemaker and there are no bacon/eggs!).  He does like grab and go type things though.  And with the Quaker Soft Baked Bar having 5g of fiber and 6g of protein, it makes a good breakfast snack.

I mentioned the fiber and protein content already but you should also know that this wholesome food has 5 of the B-vitamins.  At 140 calories each, they are just right for a breakfast on the go (or even a breakfast staying at home)!
