Dole and Disney have a passion in common, educating families how to eat healthily! Dole and Disney have been collaborating since 1976 when Dole Whip launched at the Disney Parks and ever since then it's been a partnership made in heaven. In 2016 Dole and Disney launched a global initiative to show the fun side of healthy eating, and encourage families to eat more fruits and veggies, and this is when Dole incorporated Disney-branded packaging.

I was invited to the Dole Fall Blogger Summit at the Four Seasons Westlake, where Dole’s wellness test kitchen is located. We learned that the first package branding partnership in 2016, over 9 billion servings of fruits and veggies have been enjoyed from the Disney branded Dole produce.

Dole’s chefs have worked with Disney to create family-friendly recipes, that meet Disney’s nutritional guidelines. The recipes have a special symbol on them, called the “Mickey Check.” 1 in 3 Dole consumers recognizes The Mickey Check!

Dole’s most recent healthy-living initiative is inspired by Disney’s Frozen 2, which hits theaters on November 22nd.

At our summit, we were given a first glance at Frozen 2-inspired recipes developed by Dole, that meet the Mickey Check nutritional guidelines. All the recipes are filled with fruits and veggies. You can download recipes and printables from the Dole’s website.

Did you know that Dole stickers are collectibles? You can take stickers off your bananas and place them on the play sheet to collect them all! This is one of the initiatives with the Dole and Disney partnership that encourages kids to choose fruits and veggies to eat and make healthy eating fun.

Disclosure: I’m a Dole ambassador, Dole provided me with product samples for this post and as well as compensation for my time. As always, all opinions are of my own.
