It is not uncommon for my son to order a simple grilled chicken with broccoli for dinner or a salad with a protein. My daughter, though less adventurous, would choose fresh fruit over dessert, and milk over soda most days. When my local mom friends lament that their kids only eat chicken nuggets or pizza, I remind them that getting my kids to eat healthy did not happen overnight. It took creativity and persistence and allowing my kids the freedom to simply not like certain foods, because let’s face it, there are foods I simply will not touch. Understanding the challenge parents face when it comes to getting their kids to eat healthy, Dole has a longstanding partnership with Disney and their latest collab includes 20 Disney Frozen recipes which just launched for the season.
Dole Powering the Hero Within
Dole’s partnership with Disney began in 1976 with an effort to make healthy eating more approachable for families. Dole found that the magic of Disney’s characters inspired healthier eating, and in just two years (between 2016 and 2018), with the launch of their first character partnership (Belle from Beauty and the Beast), they supplied 9 billion servings of fruits and vegetables.
Parents need support to instill healthy habits within their children. With this generation the first to have a shorter lifespan than their parents, Dole took on the challenge. The latest guidelines suggest improper diet and inadequate exercise are the leading causes of preventable death. Eight to ten servings of fruits and vegetables per day combined with intense cardio activity can positively affect those outcomes. Dole and Disney’s goal is to change daily eating habits, one meal at a time while making healthy eating fun.
Disney Frozen Banana Sticker Peel and Play
I remember the first time my kids’ saw Disney·Pixar Cars’ stickers on the bananas at our local grocery store. My kids wanted those bananas. As part of Dole and Disney’s commitment to help families eat more fruits and vegetables, they released a set of brand new Frozen 2 stickers, which you will find on Dole bananas and pineapples. Be sure to download Dole’s Banana Sticker Peel and Play sheets featuring Anna, Elsa, Kristoff, and Sven.
