The Mickey Check is becoming a recognized symbol on quick-service menus at various locations across Walt Disney World® Resort and Disneyland® Resort. The Mickey Check debuted on kids’ menus at Be Our Guest Restaurant in New Fantasyland earlier this month, and will appear on Disney table-service menus in January 2013.
Part of the Disney Magic of Healthy Living initiative, this tool was created to make it easier to identify nutritious choices that address family needs. In order to receive the Mickey Check, kids’ meals and other items must meet Disney Nutrition Guidelines. The Disney Nutrition Guidelines align to the U. S. Dietary Guidelines for Americans and focus on contributing to a nutritious diet, encouraging kid appropriate portions (with calorie criteria) and limiting nutrients to avoid (e.g. sodium, sugar, saturated fat, trans fat).
Kids’ Complete Meals include at least three of the following food groups: fruits and vegetables; low-fat dairy; whole grains; or lean protein, beans, eggs and nuts.
So look for the Mickey Check on menus at Disney Parks during your next Disney vacation!
