Our family doesn’t always sit down to eat meals together at the dining room table. Sound familiar?
For Sunday brunch I’d like to start a tradition where we slow down and enjoy healthy meals like Jennie-O Turkey Breakfast Sausage.
Before I left for my local Walmart, I checked the Jennie-O Turkey Facebook page and found four coupons for their products. Unfortunately, only the frozen turkey sausage roll was in stock so I’ll check back to see when our family can try the bacon and breakfast links.
Adding protein like Jennie-O Turkey Sausage to my son’s diet is especially important since he doesn’t eat eggs, cheese or milk due to food allergies.
Too many American children don’t get a nutritious breakfast. The Jennie-O Champion for Kids program is designed to remind parents that “Children who do not eat a nutritious breakfast have a harder time focusing and staying awake in class, which can seriously affect their future educational and professional success. Starting their day with low-fat healthy protein like Jennie-O Turkey Bacon and Sausage is a great way to help kids grow and succeed inside and outside the classroom!”
Turkey Croissaints for Brunch
I decided to introduce my son to Jennie-O turkey sausage and croissants from the Walmart bakery. He’s a sandwich freak so I figured they would be a hit.
I sliced the turkey sausage roll, fried it in a pan, then popped the croissants in the oven to make them crispy.
I buttered the croissant a bit, added the sausage then placed a cup of blueberries and strawberries on his plate to sweeten the end of his meal.
I have to admit it’s hard for me to sit down and enjoy meals with my son because I’m usually focused on making sure he clears off his plate. When I want to eat something he’s allergic to I usually wait until after he’s gone to bed to sneak in some eggs, cheese or nuts. But this time I stayed at the dining room table and got my husband to snap a few photos of us.
My son was pretty proud that his turkey sausage croissant didn’t fall apart. Since he likes to each sandwiches so much – it happens a lot. He’s used to eating sausage links. This was his first time tasting that he said looked like meatballs!
Our dining room and living room are essentially one large room where he can see the TV. For meals it’s important to shut off the TV so he can focus on eating instead of what’s coming up on Nick Jr.
