Laura Rodriguez - Mama Especial Cuenta Conmigo

“El tenis es un deporte donde la concentración es fundamental, por eso se practica en silencio, esto nos lleva a valorar el respeto desde otro nivel, uno aprende a respetar el rival, las reglas, la cancha, el profesor y el árbitro. Yo creo que este es un valor tremendo para nuestros niños, incluso a temprana edad.”

Keeping Your Kids Safe Online with Google’s Se Genial en Internet

Google took the launch of its new program Be Internet Awesome, Se Genial en Internet en Español, to Chicago! The program aims to teach kids about digital citizenship and internet safety through its fun, interactive game, Interland.

We have once again partnered with Google and a group of influencers to learn about the program and its five foundational lessons about digital safety and citizenship to help kids be safe, confident explorers of the world. 

Be Internet Awesome

Laura Muller - Las Recetas de Laura

“Google entiende que no siempre es fácil enseñar cosas a un niño con claridad, por eso eso incluyeron juegos para aprender de manera interactiva y además es totalmente gratis. Se Genial en Internet se trata sobre enseñarles a ser: Inteligentes, Alertas, Seguros, Amables y Valientes cuando hagan uso del Internet de una forma divertida.”

Jessica Castaneda - Easy Living Today

“One of the resources they offer is a super fun game called Interland. It is browser based and it makes learning all of these skills fun and interactive. I actually had the pleasure of seeing kids play Interland live at a Google event last week called Genial en Internet. Let me tell you, the kids were having a blast and the game is awesome.”

Be Internet Awesome

Deborah Cruz - The Truth About Motherhood

“Last week, I saw the program in action at an event hosted by Google for students and their parents at Gallistel Language Academy in Chicago. It was moving to see all these parents show up for their children on a weekday, in the middle of the day. They know that it’s important that we teach our kids to be safe online because we can’t watch them every minute of every day.”

Celebrate el #SabordelFutbol with Rumba Meats!

It’s no secret that Latinos are super passionate about fútbol. We don’t need a big excuse to make every fútbol match a party and there’s nothing like a soccer game to get together with family and friends to root for our favorite teams. This fútbol championship season, we partnered with Rumba Meats and a group of Latina influencers to celebrate el #SabordelFutbol through food. See below what they cooked up.

Dolores ‘Lola’ Dweck - Lola’s Cocina

“One of the things I love about soccer is how it brings people together from all over the world and all facets of life, to support their favorite team. In our family, summer fútbol is a celebration of heritage, familia, and comida. And since we’re always looking for an excuse to entertain, it provides us with the perfect reason to gather around food while enjoying the partidos.”

 

Desayuno-Trancao_receta_colombiana.jpg

Cristina Duffy - Una Colombiana en California

“El desayuno trancao fue el plato elegido para celebrar el estreno de la selección Colombia en el campeonato internacional de fútbol. Perfecto porque con seguridad nos dejará sin hambre durante toda la mañana y así veremos tranquilos todos los partidos. Y además, porque tenía antojos inmensos de esta deliciosa combinación de sabores.”

Moms Own Soccer with Comcast

It’s the summer of soccer y la fiebre del fútbol is now in full effect. The many unexpected moments that have caught fans by surprise at the soccer championship has us all screaming and celebrating with excitement. Go, Mexico! ¡Arriba Colombia!


Comcast understands this and has created the best way to experience soccer through its Xfinity platform. We partnered with Comcast and a group of influencers in the San Francisco area to attend an event and learn about the Xfinity X1’s unique features to experience soccer this summer.

Claudia Candelas

“Comcast integrated an entire section that is a hub for all the games, highlights, standings, scores, clips, and more. Also, the X1 remote now has Spanish-voice activated demands. You just speak into the remote in either Spanish or English, and you’re set. I showed my mom this feature, and she loved it!”

new-xfinity-remote.jpg

By Claudya

“No offense to my husband–I love you, BOO!–but I met a remote that is a WAY better listener than he is. This remote is such a good listener that it will listen to me in English or in Spanish and it can even understand my mom, who has a heavy accent when she speaks in English. That’s WAY more than my husband can do.”

Crystal Carabajal

“You can now view every big moment from the Soccer Championships with DVR Highlights.  On completed match recordings, X1 customers who have DVR service can browse and jump between high impact plays. With many matches airing while people are away from their TV’s or at work, DVR Highlights ensure that X1 customers never miss a goal.  How cool is that?”

Help Your Children Stay Safe Online with Google’s Se Genial en Internet

A few weeks ago, Google launched its new program Be Internet Awesome, Se Genial en Internet en Español, to teach kids about internet safety. We partnered with Google and a group of influencers to attend the launch event in Los Angeles to learn about the program and its five foundational lessons about digital safety and citizenship to help kids be safe, confident explorers of the world.  And who better to tell you about it than these five expert parenting creators!

Dariela Cruz

“Who doesn’t worry about kids safety while going online? Right now Adrian and Maya are in the stage where they both love to spend hours on the Internet more than anything else and we have to be very careful to regulate their time but also to teach them to take care of themselves and protect them from the risks that the digital world can bring. Se genial en internet, is a wonderful way to help Latino families discuss internet safety at home together.”

digital-citizenship-for-students.jpg

Vanessa Bell

“If they know how to do anything, Google knows how to communicate and spread information. That’s exactly why their digital citizenship for kids program is so effective. (And the fact that they also made it available entirely in Spanish so that all families can benefit is even more amazing.) Their robust digital citizenship curriculum can be downloaded by parents AND teachers (making this an awesome resource for teaching digital citizenship in schools), has received the Seal of Alignment from the International Society for Technology in Education (ISTE) and comes with all the digital citizenship lesson plans a teacher would need.”

Mayra Rodriguez

“El internet tiene un mar de información, pero no podemos tirar a nuestros hijos a nadar en él sin la guía y el enfoque adecuado porque se nos van a ahogar e ir a la deriva.  Con Interland, un juego gratuito e interactivo, los niños de 8-12 años aprenderán los conceptos de seguridad que harán que tengan una experiencia positiva en las redes. Para aprender a ser geniales en Internet, los niños pueden jugar con Interland, una aventura en línea que pone en práctica las lecciones clave sobre seguridad digital con cuatro juegos desafiantes.”

SIMPLY SWEET NO BAKE ENERGY BITES

A SIMPLE PANTRY

Since I’m always on the go, I’m taking my LALA® Yogurt Smoothies with me, as well as these super simple, super sweet, no bake energy bites. I can pop them in a baggie and stow them in my purse, then eat one when I need a bit more energy, so I’m not noshing on a bag of chips. The HEB Slim Down Showdown would not look too fondly on that.

STAY FIT PART 2 WITH LALA® YOGURT SMOOTHIES

LITTLE MIXICO

As many of you know by now, I work out almost everyday of the week and have a very busy lifestyle that sometimes holds me back from getting the protein I need. So today I tried the LALA® Yogurt Smoothies  and I was so excited to find a yummy smoothie that I don’t have to make myself (because cleaning the blender is no fun).

Lo Que Nos Hace Fuertes #FuertesconLeche

It’s important for kids to get protein at every meal, especially breakfast. Studies have shown that eating breakfast helps kids focus and concentrate better at school.  Milk contains nine essential nutrients in each glass and is a simple, delicious and wholesome way to give your kids a natural source of high-quality protein. You can pair your breakfast with a glass of milk for 8 grams of high-quality protein per 8 ounce glass or mix it into your favorite smoothie, overnight oats or breakfast recipe. Kids already love milk, so including it as part of a protein rich breakfast can be easy. Don't believe me? Check out some of these delicious recipe our Influencers created with milk to make us #FuertesConLeche.

Lemon Pancakes with Berry Compote

Mama Latina Tips

Giving the boys a breakfast with protein, I think, is the best way to start their day. I can see they have the energy they need and will run off to school contented and ready to learn. Of course, breakfast doesn’t have to be complicated. It can be as simple as a glass of milk with toast (each 8oz glass of milk has 9 essential nutrients including protein), or oatmeal made with milk, or a fruit licuado.

Easy Breakfast Frittata

Kinda Silly Mommy

It's a big responsibility as a parent to make sure that our little ones get the nutrients that their growing bodies need. Because, let's face it. If it were up to them, they would live off of a diet of cheddar fish and fruit snacks. It's important for kids to get protein at every meal, especially breakfast.  Did you know that milk has 9 essential nutrients in each glass? Milk is a natural source of high-quality protein and it doesn't even need to be served in a glass. It's so easy to add it to your meals, especially since you always have milk on hand.

Eggless Orange Blueberry Corn Bread

Mommy's Home Cooking

My kids really really really like milk. Since they wake up in the morning the first thing they ask for is a cup of warm milk. I love that they do because I know that It’s important for kids to get protein at every meal, especially breakfast. Plus, studies show eating breakfast helps kids focus and concentrate at school. With 9 essential nutrients in each glass, milk is a simple, delicious and wholesome way to give my kids a natural source of high-quality protein – plus other nutrients they need.

Promised Land Milk #FarFromOrdinary

The story of Promised Land Dairy starts with their cows. The most common, black and white, spotted Holstein cow produces 90% of the milk we drink here in the United States and less than 10% comes from unique Jersey cows, which come from the British Isle of Jersey and not the state New Jersey. Promised Land Dairy uses only milk from the Jersey cows and these cows are not only extraordinary, but the milk they produce is too. This milk is richer, creamier, and naturally higher in protein and calcium than ordinary milk. And it can help make life #FarFromOrdinary. Some of our Texas influencers share how they fell in love with Promised Land dairy products and how their milk is a staple in their homes.

Mexico in My Kitchen

I already enjoyed using the regular Promised Land Whole Milk in my home, but I had never tried the chocolate flavored version. To my surprise, it’s really creamy and tasty! 

Nessa's World

We made a trip to H-E-B this past weekends to pick up Promised Land Milk. Promised Land Milk isn't your ordinary milk, which is why I am sharing my top three reasons why Promised Land Milk is a staple in our household. 
 

Easy and Delish

The batter is made from pancake mix, an egg, butter, sugar, cocoa powder (optional), and Promise Land Midnight Chocolate Milk — which by the way is made with Natural Milk from the finest Jersey Cows. And no, these are not cows from New Jersey but the ones from the gorgeous British Isle of Jersey. 

Inspired by Familia

Use chocolate milk for a rich and creamy chocolate fudge pop. Just hop on over to your local H-E-B store and purchase Promised Land Milk. It’s a great choice because it’s higher in protein & calcium than ordinary milk. Milk is a staple in our house so it’s important to stock up on the right brand!

Hott Mom in the City

"Eating on-the-go is something many of us do during the busy weeks of the holidays. This time of year can very busy and hectic for many of us. The perfect on-the-go snack can keep us in a jolly mood between holiday events and the shopping madness. LALA® Yogurt Smoothies are a delicious snack made with real fruit and offer 5g of protein."

Grrfeisty

"LS is on the receiving end of whatever I put in my body, so the fact that LALA® Yogurt Smoothies are made with real fruit [or real nuts, depending on the flavor you buy] makes deciding what to quickly grab from the fridge pretty easy."

Seven Graces

"I usually skip breakfast, but with nursing, I must eat. Since I’m always pressed for time because of our never-ending busy schedule, I’ve been on the hunt for simple breakfasts and snacks. The other day, we headed to H-E-B, and I found these LALA® Yogurt Smoothies, and they are the perfect solution to satisfying my hunger while I’m on-the-go. They have 5g of protein and 8g of whole grains."

Throughout this whole flight I used my Dove Spray and seriously guys.. it worked. I arrived to Mexico and my family didn’t even know I had done that whole excursion. I seriously felt so fresh the whole time even though I was running around like a maniac."

The Fashion Muse

"After, we are taking a road trip down to the city of Atlanta where we will spend the rest of the vacation and welcome in the new year! As for the road trip essentials (and any traveling essential overall) I never fail to pack in my Dove Dry Spray. The Dove Dry Spray Antiperspirant goes on instantly dry and provides 48 hours of odor and wetness protection with all the care of Dove."

#LoveYourHair with Dove

It's no secret that Latinas have beautiful hair. We have an array of colors, textures and lengths and Dove wants to create a world where hair is a source of confidence, not anxiety. Through research they have found that there is a narrow depiction of what “beautiful hair” is traditionally thought to look like, which is why they want to encourage all women to love their hair whether is straight or curly, purple or black. By showcasing all hair types, textures, styles & colors we can change these standards and empower more women to love their hair. Three of our beautiful Latina bloggers were invited to try Dove products and share with us why they love their hair.

 

Cindy Limon

"Aprendí a querer mi cabello sobre todas las cosas. a sentirme segura de cualquier color que lo tenga, por que todo depende de la actitud que mostremos, seamos felices que la vida es hermosa. Ama tu cabello, cuídalo y se feliz."

Screen Shot 2016-12-15 at 3.57.57 PM.png

Beauty By Nena

"Aunque me imagino que para muchas es difícil de imaginarse el sufrimiento y la ansiedad que pase dolo por causa de mi cabello, se que al mismo tiempo hay muchas que se ven reflejadas en mi historia y están pensando 'si así me siento yo!'... Fue entonces que empece a sentirme con mucha confianza de soltarme el cabello"

Daily Curlz

"It took me a long time to get along with and fall in love with my hair. Now every special event is the appropriate moment to show the world that my hair is beautiful and it is better than yours."
