ORRVILLE, Ohio, Sept. 15, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Getting the kids out of bed, making sure outfits match, catching the bus on time, and that's all before 9 a.m.! Although mornings can be stressful for families, when the routine goes as planned, the rest of the day usually follows suit. Smucker's® Snack'n Waffles™ presweetened waffles are perfectly portable for families to enjoy on the bus, in the car, or wherever morning adventures take them. The brand teamed up with television personality and lifestyle expert Hannah Keeley to launch the Smucker's Snack'n Waffles On the Run Promotion where you can select your favorite morning routine personality for a chance to win $5,000 to make over your morning routine.
Now through November 17, 2011, consumers can visit www.snacknwaffles.com to select the morning routine style that best fits their personality. The Grand Prize Winner, as selected by Smucker's Snack'n Waffles, will win an "on the run" morning routine makeover in the form of a check for $5,000, and a one hour, one-on-one consultation via telephone with Hannah Keeley who will advise on the winner's morning routine makeover.
Also on the website, Hannah Keeley, host of the national public television series, "Hannah, Help Me!" shares tips for busy families to help make mornings more fun and organized.
"Mornings are full of the unexpected – forgotten homework, spilled milk, and a quick game of 'hide and seek' for the car keys or shoes," said Hannah Keeley, author of Total Mom Makeover. "With some simple strategies, such as keeping a supply of 'heat and eat' options in the freezer like Smucker's Snack'n Waffles presweetened waffles, mornings for busy parents can be stress-free."
Some of Hannah's other tips include:
- Make a lunch center in your fridge so the kids can prepare their own lunches the night before. Use the bottom drawer of the fridge to store mini bags of fresh veggies, already washed and prepped, in addition to extra goodies the kids like in their lunches.
- Keep an "oops! Kit" in your car so you don't have to waste time with common morning mishaps – like some stain remover, a jacket, mints, baby wipes, pencils and pens, detangler, and a comb (sorry, but you're on your own with the homework).
- In order to keep up with everyone's schedule, post a huge calendar in the kitchen. Buy a pack of multi-colored pens and designate each color to a family member. Tie ribbons to the pens and attach them to the calendar so they don't wander off. This way, everyone can be responsible for making their own updates to the calendar and you can immediately see who is doing what.
Smucker's Snack'n Waffles presweetened waffles (SRP of $2.99, 4-pack) go from freezer to fingertips with no mess — you can microwave in 15 seconds or thaw the whole grain waffles in four delicious flavors, including Blueberry, Maple, Cinnamon and Chocolate Chip.
The Promotion runs now through 11:59 a.m. ET on November 17, 2011. Open to legal residents of the United States and D.C., 18 and older. Void where prohibited. No purchase necessary.
