We’ve all been told that the most important meal of the day is breakfast. But whoever offered this advice should have also provided a fool-proof plan for those of us with kids and the need to be somewhere by a certain time. Sit-down breakfasts aren’t always an option — time doesn’t typically allow for a complicated breakfast and the frantic search for a pair of socks that don’t “feel weird.” Or maybe you have a picky eater and the usual foods dubbed “kid-friendly” just don’t cut it.

When it comes to breakfast, I want to get food that ideally has protein into my active kids’ bodies, and ideally that food is somewhat portable. I’m a problem solver if nothing else, and Jimmy Dean Breakfast Solutions are the ultimate delicious hack for getting my whole family’s morning off to its gloriously chaotic start.

The Jimmy Dean brand has leaned into the fact that humans love food on a stick. Maybe it’s the fact that we don’t need to stop moving to eat, or maybe it’s because it reminds us of being at a carnival. Kids are no exception to this rule, and they love the sweet and savory combo of Pancake & Sausage on a Stick. Choose between original or blueberry, grab some berries or maple syrup for dipping, and feel good about starting the family’s day with a craveable breakfast with at least 6 grams of protein.

Because we’re a hockey family, early mornings are a regular occurrence in our house. What makes these bright and early mornings run a little smoother are breakfast sandwiches. My kids realized they love breakfast sammies the way all kids do: they refused to try their own but devoured most of mine when they wanted to “try a bite.”

If your kid doesn’t have the same appetite as mine do or are ready to house more than one, then I strongly suggest the Snack-Sized Biscuit Sandwiches that serve up the best of Jimmy Dean sandwiches in slider form. We add cheese to everything, so don’t be afraid to turn these meat and biscuit delights into your own creation. We also love adding a hashbrown to the maple pancake and sausage option.

If your kid has entered their Egg Phase, Jimmy Dean Biscuit Roll-Ups are the quick and easy enjoy-at-home or on-the-go choice. They are literally biscuits wrapped around egg, cheese, ham or sausage. No, you don’t have to share with your kid this time — they can have their own while you skip the mess of making and cleaning up eggs. And if a clean(ish) kitchen isn’t enough, you get to enjoy knowing your kid has 10 grams of protein in their body to help keep them energized through their day.

Jimmy Dean products carry the main character energy we all need to start our day. Pick your faves and enjoy the beautiful chaos of a family morning. Oh, and the sock thing may last a while, so good luck!
