The Milk Truck comes to California! #Positivismo

When I was little the milk man actually would come to our home and deliver milk.  We lived in a small community near the border. There was also a dairy farm in the area and they would deliver milk door to door.  Times have really changed over the years. However,  we received wonderful news a couple of weeks ago that the milk truck was headed to one of our fellow Positivity Ambassadors neighborhood to share the benefits of milk with her community.

As many of you have been following along a glass of milk before bedtime makes for a good night’s sleep.  In an effort to help remind parents to give their children milk before bedtime, the California Milk Processor Board’s Milk Truck visited  fellow Positivity Ambassador Presley’s Pantry last week. More than 50 of Presley Pantry’s family, friends and neighbors joined the festivities as the Milk Truck made its way through her East Los Angeles neighborhood. Everyone had a blast as sang along to the “Ya es hora de ir a la cama” song, while they enjoyed flavored milk.

The idea of the milk truck was developed around the popular tradition of drinking a glass of milk before bedtime. As the milk truck made its way through the  neighborhood, it played the “Ya es hora de ir a la cama” song in an effort to remind parents to send their kids to bed early with a bedtime story and a glass of milk.   The video reminded me a lot of my childhood.  This type of “bedtime ritual” can help parents make sure that their children sleep better while creating special, loving moments between parent and child. capture.


It was wonderful memory for the parents and especially for the kids!   Here’s is a glimpse of what all the families experienced.  Sing a long everyone!
