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.

  • Apparently even FALL decided to go on a last minute vacay. 😆🍁🏖 Don’t blame it one bit. Just wish I could be back at the Disneyland Hotel poolside with this never ending 90 degree weather. 😬🔥 .

  • Ahhh! - We’re finally done with our kitchen renovation! 🎉 Obsessed with how it turned out & can’t wait to share it with you. But before I do, I wanted to also keep it real. .
.
The behind the scenes were cray w/ kids and no kitchen. Making meals, healthy at that, was such a challenge. I made this quick breakfast all the time in my office while there was construction going on. 🤪
.
.
Only 4 Ingredients Needed: 🎃 @go_raw Sprouted Pumpkin Seeds, Sliced 🍌Banana, 🍓berries & chia seeds
.
.
Pumpkin seeds are a tasty alternative to nuts because they’re a good source of PROTEIN, iron, magnesium, copper and manganese. Did you know sprouted seeds optimize available proteins, enzymes and minerals, making it easier to digest and allowing nutrients to be more easily absorbed by the body? 🙌 Junk-free snacks that taste good.😋
.

Stay tuned for our kitchen Reno blog post and all our NEW quick healthy eat recipes!! If you’re always on-the-go, these are for YOU! 👌💃 #quickhealthyeats #breakfast

  • #AD | As a mom, I tend to put myself last, more so when it comes to annual exams and that includes vision. The worst part is knowing I have access to VSP Vision Care through my spouse's’ employer yet I continued to put it on the back burner all because I thought my vision was just fine. .
.
But guess what? I decided to finally book my annual eye exam. So glad I did as it turns out I have pretty bad eye allergies and I also need glasses. Here I was thinking everything was fine even though I was experiencing all these symptoms that I had no idea were connected to my vision. Those annual eye exams are a must. Be sure to schedule yours in mama! And if you don’t have vision care, open enrollment season is happening right now. Find out all the info on our latest blog post. #SeeMuchMore #weseeyoumom @VSPVisionCare
  • Mia, our oldest said to me last night, "Mommy when Lexi was in your tummy I prayed a lot of times at night that I'd get a sister. And I got a sister! I love my little sister." And then a few minutes later was arguing with little sister over a toy. 🤪 .
.
Sibling love is the best kinda love, right? They love each other so much, look after one another yet also fight. But they instantly forgive one another. 👭#KidsTeachParentsToo .
