Disney Cruise Line has announced what it calls its commitment to make healthy living simpler and more fun for families, Mickey Check meals are now offered in the rotational dining restaurants aboard all four of its 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 have 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, vice president of hotel operations. “Disney is known for innovative and fun dining experiences at its parks and resorts around the world. And dining aboard our ships delivers on the trust, quality and promise guests expect. Now, with the Mickey Check, our chefs are taking healthy food and making it fun and delicious for our youngest guests.”
According to a prepared statement, immersive dining experiences at Disney parks and on Disney cruise ships blend cuisine with storytelling. Whether it’s a quick meal on the go, a character dining experience or an exquisite adults-only dinner at Remy, the cruise line promises that guests will find a range of food and beverage options to satisfy their exotic, health conscious and even comfort-food tastes.
