'Mickey Check' points to healthier dining choices on Disney ships

'Mickey Check' points to healthier dining choices on Disney ships
Parents sailing with Disney Cruise Line have an easier way to identify healthier menu choices for their children. 'Mickey Check' meals are now offered in rotational dining restaurants aboard all four ships.

To receive the Mickey Check, foods must be nutritious and meet Disney nutrition guidelines for calories, saturated fat, sodium and sugar. These guidelines were developed by leading child health experts and align to best-in-class dietary guideline recommendations.

A complete Mickey Check kids’ meal, for example, includes three or more nutritious food groups (such as vegetables, whole grains, lean protein), has limited added sugar and does not contain any trans fats.

'More and more families are looking for healthier options when they travel, and with Mickey Check, we’ve made it easy for them to identify these choices on our menus,' said Ozer Balli, vp hotel operations for Disney Cruise Line. He added that dining aboard a Disney ship 'delivers on the trust, quality and promise guests expect.'

The Mickey Check is used at various locations throughout Walt Disney World and Disneyland Resorts, on Disney-licensed food products sold at retail and on qualifying recipes on The Mickey Check is a part of the Disney Magic of Healthy Living commitment that launched in 2006.
