Disney phasing out junk food

Disney has announced they will phase out unhealthy food from all their premises, cutting levels of fat, sugar and salt in all meals served over the next two years, and serving water, fruit juice and milk.

Peter Melchett, Soil Association policy director, was interviewed on the UK’s ITV lunchtime news yesterday. Peter said:

“Disney’s decision will definitely influence a lot of children and their families all over the world. We hope too that it will influence UK theme parks and tourist attractions like Madame Tussauds, Alton Towers, Blackpool Pleasure Beach and Chessington World of Adventures to introduce healthy food and drink choices for children. In the UK, the Soil Association and Organix research showed that the healthy choices provided by The Tower of London and the Eden project are popular with children and their parents.?

Disney’s move is historical, as the two guys behind Disney and McDonald’s were good friends, paving the way for many cross-promotions between their two corporations over more than 50 years. We hope that this friendship will continue, but with McDonald’s able to provide great tasting and fun organic foods for Disney’s theme parks worldwide.
