Actress Nina Dobrev of “The Vampire Diaries” understands that good role-modeling starts with simple, positive acts. That’s why she and her mother are teaming up with the National Milk Mustache “got milk?” Campaign and Seventeen magazine to launch “Like Her, Like Me” — a program that draws attention to the many ways in which moms and teens can positively influence each other.
The campaign culminates in a search for special mother-daughter duos to appear in their very own Milk Mustache ad. This is the first time that Nina and her mother team-up in an ad. It was announced Thursday, May 10.
Earlier, award-winning actress Salma Hayek and celebrity TV chef Ellie Krieger teamed up with the National Milk Mustache “got milk?” Campaign to launch The Breakfast Project to help more Americans enjoy breakfast at home and be sure to set the table with milk.

“My mom and I are especially close — we’ve learned a lot from each other. Growing up, my mom would make us oatmeal with milk; we’d spend time together as a family during breakfast which is, hands down, the most important meal of the day,” said Dobrev.
“Through the ‘Like Her, Like Me’ program, we want to inspire moms and teens to share more special moments and healthy habits — whether they’re swapping stories over a glass of milk or bonding at breakfast.”
