Día de los Niños-Easter-Cheerios Bars

April is a busy month for us. Family birthday parties, double spring break (one for papi and one for our little kindergartner), Easter, and El Día del Niño. Some of you might be wondering what exactly that last one is. Well, we’d love to share.

“Children’s Day (El Día Del Niño) is celebrated as a tribute to children in Mexico on April 30. Children are recognized as an important part of society so the day focuses on the importance of loving, accepting and appreciating children.” — Timeanddate.com
This holiday is reserved for our kids to create something artsy (so that mamá can hang/frame), have a picnic outdoors and cook/bake something sweet of their choice. Well since Easter is so close to this holiday, Mia insisted that we make bunny and egg-shaped treats this year. So we’re mixing the two and celebrating both holidays all month long because why not, right?

And today, we’re super excited to share that we’ve partnered up with General Mills to celebrate Día de los Niños (Children’s Day) by creating a Cheerios recipe. It’s easy peasy to make, and tasty for all those sweet kiddos in your life. And as mentioned, also perfect for Easter as it has all the cute pastel chocolate colors and bunny/egg shapes.

Currently loving their salted caramel, black cherry, oatmeal cookie, cookies n cream and chocolate mocha chip. Oh and s'mores...ok, seriously though, way too many to pick just one. 😋What's your fav???

  • As a kid growing up in Southern CA, I vividly remember all our yearly summer trips to Disneyland. But one memory that really stands out from the rest was watching the Electrical Parade on Main Street. And now that @disneyland brought it back, it's been unreal watching it with my two littles. I can't even tell you how magical🌈 but I can show ya. Check out our stories. 🤗 We keep replaying it over here. 🤣
