Disney could have put Mickey Mouse’s face on just about any food item and it would have sold like gangbusters but this time Mickey will be promoting much more……Your health!
Disney Consumer Products has released a bunch of new items that you can find at your local grocery store which includes everything from fruit and vegetables to cereals and snacks, all branded with your favorite Disney characters. And I think most people would agree that these items are much healthier alternatives for both kids and adults.
Let’s start out with Disney’s line of Fruits and Vegetables. Disney may have found the answer to the age old problem of getting your kids to eat their veggies……just put Mickey’s image on the package and you’re half way there! Attractive packaging combined with great taste makes these items sure winners. Last I checked you can find Apples, Plums, Peaches, Blueberries and a host of other items all branded with the Disney logo. Check out some of the things you’ll find next time you’re shopping:
Some of the best apples I’ve eaten!
These are great convenient little packs and perfect for on-the-go snacking or for the kid’s lunch boxes. You’ll also find these apple packs in Walt Disney World when you order apples as your side item.
Who would have thought…..Disney Lettuce? I’ve tried it and it works for me!
Put Donald Duck on the Cauliflower and just about any kid will try it!
Magical Tinker Bell Corn! (well, that’s what I told my daughter it was and she loved it!)
In addition Disney Consumer Products also has a wide variety of very healthy snack alternatives. With so many parents (and adults) looking for better healthier options, Disney has brought to the table a line of snacks that not only taste good but will make you and your doctor happy. Check out some of the items you’ll find…..
The Strawberry Yogurt bars are a particular favorite of mine. They’re low calorie and a perfect quick breakfast item
The Blueberry bars are great! Plus it didn’t hurt that they put a great movie and theme park attraction on the box either!
This one in particular is a great snack item. Very healthy, no fat and low calories.
Disney Consumer Products also has a lot of other items at your local grocery store (Kroger for one) including many different healthy snacks, cereals and meal items. You can also search online as you’ll find a lot of the snack/cereal items on larger websites like Amazon.com.
