A mum has wowed hundreds of other parents after sharing her hack for getting her kids out of the door in time for school every day, with many saying it’s the perfect solution for busy mornings.
The Australian woman, called Jacki, posted on Facebook, where she revealed how she prepares ‘snack-size cereal bags’ every Sunday, which she accompanies with mini cartons of milk each morning.
Her children can then enjoy their breakfast in the car without her having to worry about the time.

Jacki wrote: ‘Here’s a little hack I use when we’re running behind in the mornings, trying to feed the kids and get out the door for school and work.
‘I prepare these snack-size cereal bags on a Sunday, and keep tetra packs of full cream mini milks in the fridge.
‘My kids happily munch and sip on these in the car. They are great for mornings when they’re finding it hard to get motivated.’
She added: ‘It saves the “Drill Sargeant” coming out’.

Hundreds of other mums and dads who saw the woman’s post were impressed, and wondered why they had never thought of the trick before.
‘This is great, one mum posted.
‘I’m a single mum and work full time with a 50 minute commute each way in the mix. The days are long for my little person, and sometimes that extra 20 minutes of sleep is more important than a meal at a table.’
Another added: ‘I’m a teacher and I have so many kids coming in hungry as they’ve had no breakfast.
‘They’re cranky and can’t concentrate. I buy fruit for those kids who don’t have brekkie. Well done mum for providing brain food for your babies before school.’
Others suggested the woman try porridge oats in a thermos flask, or whisking together a few fruits each morning to make a smoothie too.
Many said the best re-usable container to use if you don’t want to use zip-lock bags is the $4 Breakfast To Go container from Kmart.
‘We do this too,’ another woman wrote.
‘Kmart have some handy containers that I prep a few days in advance, the cereal stays crispy in the fridge too.’
The Breakfast To Go container has an impressive five-star rating online, where shoppers have described it as ‘convenient’, ‘awesome’ and ‘very handy for work or school’.
