Dole and Marvel have teamed up on an awesome mission! In anticipation of Avengers : Infinity War coming to theaters on April 27, 2018; Dole and Marvel are encouraging families to make healthy eating fun. They declare that encouraging children to eat a diet rich in fresh fruits and vegetables does not have to be an epic battle. I am excited to share about this heroically tasty mission, but also giveaway a fantastic prize!
This is a unique collaboration that is sure to encourage heroic food choices for families. Dole and Disney announced this awesome collaboration in 2016, and Powering the Hero Within is the latest initiative for the multi-year healthy living alliance. Combining the allure of powerful super heroes from the Marvel Universe with Dole’s nutrition experts is sure to encourage kids to make heroic choices when it comes to meal time. Consumer promotions, in store activities, and fun themed recipes online are sure to get the attention of super heroes in training everywhere!
We have found personally that something as simple as a beloved Super Hero sticker on a banana makes our kids more excited to choose it for lunch.
Make sure to check out more on how to Power the Hero Within from Dole! Super fun recipes and interactive quizzes are sure to inspire healthy eating choices. Also, make sure to keep your eyes peeled when you visit your local grocery store. You are sure to see fresh produce proudly bearing Super Hero endorsements. You may also find that your grocery store is hosting a fun in-store activity as well. All of this is being done as a way to make healthy choices even more super!
The creative and fun recipes available on Dole’s website are my favorite part of this initiative. Thirty unique recipes packed with fruits and or veggies. Each clever recipe is inspired by a Marvel Super hero or movie. While many of these recipes would be a perfect menu items for a Marvel themed birthday party or viewing party; they are also fantastically nutritious! From Asgard Avocado Bowls to Secret Agent Smoothies to Wakanda Wraps, kids are sure to be looking at food a little differently. Check out all the Marvelous Meals Recipes on their site!
While there are over 30 recipes on their website, we have included our five favorites here as convenient printables. Taking care of your body is the first step to being a Super hero! These recipes are perfect fuel to get through the day. They are all as fun as they are nutritious. If you are planning a Avengers : Infinity War themed party – these colorful options are sure to wow your guests!
