Great news for families who prefer to stick with healthy food options during their Disney adventures!
Mickey Check Meals have now made their way to the entire fleet of Disney Cruise Line ships.
The Mickey Check is an emblem that kids and adults can use on Disney menus to quickly identify meals that meet the Disney Nutrition Guidelines. Mickey Check Meals have been available throughout Walt Disney World and Disneyland. And now, you can add them to your Disney Cruise Line dining options as well.
The use of the Mickey Check and the creation of healthy, nutritious meals continues the work of the Disney Magic of Healthy Living Initiative. The project works to provide nutritious options and kid-appropriate portions.
Mickey Check Meals aim to provide three or more nutritious food groups, including
vegetables, whole grains, and lean protein. They also use recipes and ingredients that incorporate less sodium, sugar, and saturated and trans fats.
While vacation is certainly a time to enjoy a few indulgences, it’s good to know that you have healthy options to offset more decadent choices. And really, isn’t healthy eating all about balance? 😉
