Disney Magic of Healthy Living

Disney Magic of Healthy Living partners with parents to inspire kids to lead healthier lifestyles.  The initiative includes engaging content, useful tools, as well as nutrition guidelines that pair the fun of Disney’s stories and characters with a well-balanced portfolio of foods and healthier lifestyle choices.  Disney’s nutrition guidelines, which were first introduced in 2006, are aligned to federal standards, promote fruit and vegetable consumption and call for limiting calories and reducing saturated fat, sodium, and sugar.

In June 2012, The Walt Disney Company adds the "Mickey Check" tool, an icon that calls out nutritious and menu items sold in stores, online, and at restaurants and food venues at its U.S. Parks and Resorts.  The "Mickey Check" tool will appear on licensed foods products, on qualified recipes on Disney.com and Family.com, and on menus and select products by the end of 2012.  The “Mickey Check” tool will support the breakthrough efforts by further reducing sodium in kids’ meals and introducing new well balanced kids’ breakfast meals.
