Say goodbye to unhealthy snack items at the Disney Parks
Hey there guys and gals Anonymouse here.
I am sure by now many of you have read how Michelle Obama has talked with Bob Iger at Disney on changing the way we advertise foods to our children. If not you can read it here.
But did you know it goes beyond that??
According to ABC not only is Disney going to change it’s advertising ways they are also going to be scrapping some of the unhealthy food options at Disney World and Disneyland.
Fast-food options at theme parks and resorts will be replaced with alternatives such as apples or vegetables.
Disney chefs provided examples of the cuisine today that will a place in the parks and resorts, including as smoothies and quinoa. Even the big boss himself — Mickey Mouse — took part. Donning a huge white chef’s hat, the man-sized rodent advertised a Swiss breakfast cereal of oats and yogurt.
But when asked whether treats such as Mickey Mouse ice cream would remain available for purchase, Mr. Mouse gave a silent but emphatic thumbs up.
Iger was quick to note that ice cream, fries and what he called “celebratory foods” would remain on the menu, but would be a distinct minority and no longer the default choice.
No word as of yet if treats like the Marble Cupcake above or some of the calorie rich food items that Chip has on his 100 Disney Foods to Eat Before you Die Challenge will be taken off the menu at the parks.
This makes me quite mad!!!!
While healthy food options are good don’t get me wrong I don’t think the
government Michelle Obama needs to be involved in those choices. Disney should present them to us the parents and then it should be up to us to decide if we do or do not want our children to eat them.
Next you have the potential removal of the yummy one of a kind snack items that can only be found at Walt Disney World or Disneyland. I don’t know about you but when I goto Disney World I am on vacation. If I want to wake up and have a cupcake at Starring Rolls I should be free to do so. If I want to load my kids up on sugar for breakfast then I am the one who has to deal with their sugar high that morning. The choice should be there and up to the adult to decide what they want to do.
To start taking away the food items I love in the name of Health seems crazy. We live in a free country. We should have the freedom to choose what we want to eat. Don’t even get me started on banning pop in NYC. That right there is a road we do not want to go down. IMO.
Anyway I am done ranting for now. Lets see where these changes go and what if any food items get removed from the Disney Menus. What do you think about these potential changes coming to the Disney Parks? Let us know in the comment box below.
Anywho that is all the Disney Gossip I have right now. For my past Gossip articles be sure to check them out here.
