February is National Hot Breakfast Month!

Every single morning, my kids sit down to a breakfast of pancakes. They're such little creatures of habit! But who can blame them- there's nothing better than a plate of warm pancakes and syrup. Apparently we are not alone in loving our breakfasts- February is actually National Hot Breakfast Month!

In honor of National Hot Breakfast Month, Log Cabin (the first and only branded table syrup to eliminate high fructose corn syrup from its ingredients!) did a survey to look at how the modern family enjoys breakfast. The results are pretty interesting!

Don’t tell Paula Deen, but she came in third!
·       Mom may not have a show on the Food Network, but she runs the show at her own house. Outranking both Rachel Ray and Paula Deen, Mom is the top pick for America’s favorite breakfast chef with 42 percent preferring that she make the first meal of the day at their houses!

You are What You Eat
·       More than half of those polled stated they make a conscious effort to choose breakfast options they feel good about for themselves and their families (56 percent), with nearly half (49 percent) stating they are trying to remove high fructose corn syrup from their family's diet.

Please Pass the Conversation
·       Modern families continue to make conversation over their morning meal.  Eighty-eight percent of Americans talk to each other over breakfast, outnumbering those who watch TV (63%) or read a newspaper or magazine (51%) or use an iPad/mobile device (35%).

Disclosure: I will be receiving an assortment of goodies from Log Cabin, but I was not compensated in any other way for this post.
