We are absolutely thrilled to introduce the newest member of our family: LaLa Breakfast!
Breakfast is often called the most important meal of the day and yet so very many families I have spoken to struggle with it – mine included. I'll admit, it has been a challenge at times to make sure my kids (and myself and my husband!) are fed a balanced meal in the morning before we all race out the door. I set out to improve the flow of lunch with LaLa Lunchbox and since then, lunch planning has been chugging along smoothly. But after one too many breakfast-related arguments, temper tantrums and mishaps, I realized something had to be done.
What's the problem anyway? First of all, time is tight. And though I may be a morning person, my family members certainly are not. There were two options: I could choose what my kids ate in the morning (and deal with the potential waste of unwanted items) or be faced with a barrage of requests, many of which I either couldn't (or didn't want to) prepare in time or didn't have on hand. I don't know about you but the last thing I want to hear in the morning as I struggle to get everything done is whining.
Enter LaLa Breakfast. It began on paper, just like LaLa Lunchbox. Each night, my kids eagerly grabbed for it and selected what they'd like to eat the next morning. Naturally, it had to be within reason; I'm neither a short order cook nor a fully stocked grocery store. I let them know what was available and they made their selections. Whatever was able to be prepped in advance, was. Cereal was poured into a bowl and set out on the table. Fruit was cut and stored in containers in the fridge. Breakfast became easier chez moi! And I'm happy to report, the breakfast-related whining has left the building. LaLa Breakfast gives users the option to "hide" items that are not available and like LaLa Lunchbox, it generates a handy grocery list for parents. The Food Library is organized into the following four categories: Eggs, Produce, Grains and Protein. For those who have both LaLa Breakfast and LaLa Lunchbox, the two grocery lists can be seamlessly synced into one, and accessible via multiple devices.
LaLa Breakfast was created to end breakfast chaos so that families can wake up to healthy, happy mornings. I sincerely hope you enjoy using it! And special thanks to my sometimes goofy, always hungry little (and big!) monsters for their hearty support, feedback and big smiles.
