Healthy living doesn’t always come natural to children or adults for that matter. It’s a conscious choice we have to make every single day for ourselves and for the ones we love.
Getting kids to become animated about healthy lifestyle habits is not always easy. Recently, Disney Consumer Products (DCP) announced an exciting new program to help equip parents and busy families with the tools they need to incorporate more of these habits into a busy schedule. Through a series of weekly challenges over the course of 12 weeks, D-Lightful Living: Animate Your Daily Routine will give parents tips inspired by fun Disney-branded products on how to help motivate their families to make simple and easy changes like eating more fruits and vegetables, improving oral care habits and preparing for cold and flu season.
Week 3 of the D-Lightful Living program offers a fun challenge for families.
Busy school days demand proper refueling at lunch. To keep kids — and moms — satisfied, our products provide an array of tasty, nutritious options and fun lunch necessities.
Try these three tips to help your kids get a healthy lunch every day this week:
- Allow your kids to participate by making decisions about what to pack in their lunch
- Include your kids when packing their lunch to teach your kids about the different food groups
- Remember, it’s not just the food that gets kids excited — let them choose a lunch bag or container with their favorite character
Along with these fun and easy tips to share with your children, Disney offers a number of products that can be incorporated into your life making healthier living a little more exciting for kids. My own daughter who happens to be a HUGE Mickey Mouse fan loved that I replaced her usual afternoon snack with the Mickey Mouse Fruit Crisps which are 100% natural fresh fruit that has been freeze dried. They not only happen to feature her favorite character but are also great for taking fruit on the go without all of the mess.
