Sara Lee Corp., Downers Grove, Ill., says new Jimmy D's breakfast entrees are ideal for kids and 'tweens looking for a quick meal before school. Meanwhile, the new breakfast items offer moms a convenient breakfast option for the family because each offering contains just 210 calories or less and 7 or more grams of protein.

In a frenzy to get out the door, kids and tweens often rush off to school without eating breakfast, says Sara Lee. Conveniently microwaveable and ready to eat in less than two minutes, Jimmy D’s breakfasts help moms start their kids’ day off right with a warm, balanced breakfast when combined with a serving of fruit and a glass of fat-free milk.

"On days when her family has important events and much to accomplish, moms are especially aware of the value of starting the day with a hearty breakfast that provides energy for herself and her kids," says Daryl Gormley, vice president breakfast and snacking, Sara Lee North American Retail. "At Jimmy Dean, we know that eating a balanced breakfast that includes protein can help give you the fuel you need to start off your morning right and focus on all of the important things you have planned for the day rather than on your hunger. We’re excited to introduce an offering that can help serve that need."
