9bar to the rescue and a competition!

Hubbie and I are not morning people; it’s a struggle every day lately to find the enthusiasm to leave our warm beds!  The boys woke up at 2am, 3am and 4am last night with separate wee breaks and then a bad dream!  So you can understand why we might lack a certain spring in our step first thing.

Breakfast is often compromised because we rush around when we finally get moving.  Having tried to squeeze a few moments more shut eye in each day, even though the boys are shouting “is it morning yet? Its definitely morning, I think its morning therefore it is…” so really we should just get up straight away and have more time to get a wholesome breakfast down us.  But as it is hubbie is usually off to work with a rumbling tummy because we ran out of time again…


Fortunately 9bar came to the rescue sending a hamper of goodies, so I packed hubbie off to work with a handful of 9bars to give him a boost in the morning.   


The boys were keen to try out a bar too; youngest and eldest both enjoyed the Apricot & Strawberry Bars.  Eldest likes seeds and nuts so I should encourage that palate and move him away from sweets.  Youngest enjoyed the bar but did pick out the sunflower seeds (a natural energy boost!) but as he is so full of beans anyway him not having any more get up and go is not such a bad thing.

The breakfast bars are ideal if like us mornings are manic and breakfast not always guaranteed for the adults.  Of course the children never go hungry its just the big people that get forgotten here.  You can keep some bars stashed in your office drawers and you will always have a nutritious breakfast to accompany your morning tea drinking session.

The blend of seeds helps with natural energy and if any family needs that it’s us, hubbie and I are usually slumped over by midday!  So anything to combat tiredness is welcome here.  Thank you 9bar for giving us a lift the last few mornings.

If you would like to keep up to date with 9bar news and offers then please take a moment to subscribe to their newsletter.  I am off to drool over the picture of indulgent flapjacks on their website…

I have been kindly offered another hamper to giveaway, if you would like to enter which I am sure you will please fill out the form below by the 2nd of November.
