Straight from the OC Register’s Around Disney’s Blog:
Four years ago, Disney parks began an endeavor to create healthier kids’ meals.
Now, the Disneyland Resort’s two parks offer lower-calorie meals at all of its restaurants. At the parks alone, 38 menu options are available. Another 40 are on hotel restaurant and room-service menus.
Children automatically get healthy sides and drinks, such as carrots and milk when they order a kids’ meal. Still, visitors can request fries or sodas. But about 60 percent of visitors choose the healthier options.
The maximum guidelines for a meal: 550 calories, 35 percent of calories from fat, no added trans fats and 10 percent of sugar added or none when possible. Click, “more” for the list of new food items.
