This week, and next week, and the following couple of weeks are summer camp time at our house!  Day camp actually leaves us busier than the school year and mornings are just a little bit crazy.  This week, the girl is helping at a VBS, so she needs to be there at 8am.  The boy needs to be at his camp at 9 am, but it's about a 25 minute drive.  And I need to simplify our morning plan because there isn't enough coffee in the world to get me organized!

Breakfast on the go!
Pancake wrap, syrup to dip, yogurt, strawberries

Our newest solution?  Breakfast on the go with Foster Farms® Pancake Wraps!  We've tried both varieties, Original Sausage and Pancake and Sausage and Pancake Bacon, Egg and Cheese, and are very happy to report that they are both tasty!

We found our Foster Farms® Pancake Wraps with the other corndog products.

The kids and I headed over to Walmart to pick up our Pancake Wraps.  Make sure to look carefully.  We found them with the other corn dog style products, not in the frozen breakfast section.  Since each kid wanted to try a different variety, I bought both.  Right now, the Ibotta coupon app has a $1 off coupon if you buy a box of either variety.

Download the Ibotta app to get your rebate!

You can download Ibotta in the app store, sign up (I used my Facebook since it's all connected), then find the Walmart store and unlock the coupon.  Easy peasy, and I discovered a bunch of other coupons on things I buy anyhow.

Foster Farms® Pancake Wraps also fit perfectly into our top 5 summer camp tips for families!  Do you have kids going to camp this summer?  Here are our five must-dos for camp success:
  • #5 - Read the camp information carefully.  Then read it again.  Dates, times, things the kids need, etc, we mark them down on our calendar so nothing is forgotten.  I can't always run back to camp with a swim suit or $5 for an extra activity, so organization is a must for us.
  • #4 - Get extra sleep!  It's so tempting, in summer, to let the kids stay up late, but day camp is just as busy as a school day.  At least one person in my house needs extra sleep, no matter what time the sun sets.
  • #3 - Pack for the weather.  Send sunscreen, a sun hat, extra water bottles, chapstick, a hoodie, or other things for your climate.  It's been chilly in WA in the mornings but warm by afternoon.  A hoodie is a must, plus a sunhat for later in the day.
  • #2 - A lunch that is healthy and filling, along with snacks.  I avoid a ton of sweets and opt for extra fruit for the liquids, along with protein bars for the afternoon, frozen yogurts and fruit pouches, plus a solid lunch.  The kids know to eat the perishables first at their ages, so we've never had problems.  Don't forget the ice packs!
  • #1 - Breakfast!  It really is the most important meal of the day.  We're loving the Foster Farms® Pancake Wraps as a portable breakfast that the kids enjoy that includes protein.  My kids do so much better with protein in the mornings.  We add some yogurt and fruit to round out the meal and we're all set to go.

What are your best summer camp tips?  What's your one go-to breakfast item for those crazy mornings?
