Guests will soon notice a “Mickey Check” on menus for kids’ meals at Walt Disney World and Disneyland. This symbol means that a specific meal meets Disney nutrition guidelines as part of the Disney Magic of Healthy Living Initiative.

The Mickey Check is currently being rolled out for Quick Service locations and will be included at all Table Service locations by January 2013. The Check has already appeared on the menus at the Be Our Guest Restaurant in Florida’s Magic Kingdom.

The Check is there to identify meals that are appropriately portioned and balanced, with limited calories, saturated fats, sodium, and sugar. These meals must contain at least three of the following items: fruits and vegetables, low-fat dairy, whole grains, and lean protein (including beans, eggs, and nuts). In order for these meals to meet the Mickey Check criteria, there can be no substitutions (although substitutions will be offered should guests choose them).

  • I believe it’s a great idea to offer kids a balanced dining choice but I’m happy to know that substitutions will be offered. Some kids are so picky. I know mine were! It’s good to know that Disney cares enough to let parents know that the meal is healthy. Ultimately, it’s up to the parents to choose what to order for their little ones.
