The Check is Disney’s quick and easy way of identifying healthier foods and beverages that meet the Walt Disney Company’s rigorous Nutrition Guideline Criteria that helps parents and kids agree on and make healthier eating choices. You’ll find Disney Check/ Mickey Check symbols on Walt Disney World and Disneyland restaurant menus (including online menus). In addition, you’ll find Mickey Check on various Disney-licensed food products sold at grocery stores across the country.
Disney is pleased to announce today that they are expanding the Disney Check program to include both Marvel and Star Wars brands. You’ll find the new Star Wars and Marvel branded icons (like the ones above) in store, online and anywhere that Disney products are sold.
Disney launched the “Disney Check” in response to parents who were looking for a simple and easy way to identify healthier food and beverage choices. According to Elissa Margolis, senior vice president of Enterprise Social Responsibility for Disney, “Disney is committed to creating healthier generations by making healthy living fun and simple. Parents are looking for positive ways to encourage nutritious eating with their kids, and the expanded Disney Family of Checks puts the full power of the Disney, Star Wars, and Marvel brands to work for families.”
“We work with best-in-class food and beverage companies, and are excited that the Check tool is encouraging families to make healthier choices,” said John T. King, vice president, Licensing, Disney Consumables. “We are always looking for new ways to expand our offering of healthy foods, and are thrilled to work with our licensees and partners to leverage this expanded tool.”
Disney’s Nutrition Guideline Policy is part of The Walt Disney Company’s Healthy Living Commitment, which also includes efforts to support and promote physical activity, healthy habits, and nutritious food and beverages.
