Disney Ships to Offer Mickey Check Meals for Kids
Parents sailing with Disney Cruise Line now have an easier way to identify healthier menu choices for their children.
As part of Disney’s aim to make healthy living simpler and more fun for families, Mickey Check meals are now offered in rotational dining restaurants aboard all four Disney ships.
To receive the Mickey Check, foods must be nutritious and meet Disney Nutrition Guidelines for calories, saturated fat, sodium and sugar.

According to Disney, 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.
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 Disney.com.
