How to be Ready Every Day for a Big Day #MiniMissions

It was the moment my daughter was dreading, and in a way, so were we. It was back to school day. Back to schedules, rushing to the drop off lane, preparing for spelling tests and homework. As much as I love seeing my daughter grow, waking up at 6:30am to wake the whole family does not make me jump for joy. But I wake up that early cause for even 10 minutes, we can enjoy an easy, yet nutritious breakfast together. 

With our daughter’s growing mind and body, we always make sure she gets a good start to her day. She has a cup of “tea” (juice… she’s just fancy), cereal, usually Frosted Mini Wheats, a fruit or two and then she grabs a bottle of water to take with her for the school day. Lately, we’ve been grabbing this breakfast as a family which has made this time not only good for our brains and bodies, but good for our hearts too. My daughter is growing up quickly and I know these early morning chats are numbered, so we enjoy it every second we can. 

This August, we have made promised to start a Nutrition Tradition. We eat healthy and well, each morning and we eat together… and now, I log these moments to track our completed “Mini-Missions.” Frosted Mini Wheats has teamed up with Scholastic in the Everyday is a Big Day program by creating mini-missions you and your family can participate in. To participate, visit to register your family for the Every Day is a Big Day program. Each month, log in and complete a new Mini™Mission to earn 2 free Scholastic books for your family.

When your family completes a Mini™ Mission, you are also entered into a sweepstakes where 131 prizes will be awarded to schools and communities each month. The prizes include things lik $25 Scholastic Teacher Store Online gift cards, Scholastic book sets for classrooms, $200 grants for PTO/PTAs, and a Book Nook Library Makeover.

See that little girl? That is my baby on her first day of 1st grade. My mission is to make sure she is happy, healthy, and thriving both physically and mentally. With Frosted Mini Wheats Mini Missions, I can ensure she gets a great start to her day, and we have fun as a family. That is prize enough for me…but the two scholastic books would be awesome too.
