I am an official ambassador for Dole Fresh. Dole provided me with compensation for my time. As always, all opinions are my own.
I love fruits and vegetables, but to be totally honest, there are still a lot of vegetables that my picky 8 year-old daughter won’t eat…unless it is in a cool recipe or presented in a fun way. Parents rejoice! Dole and Marvel have come together to make our jobs easier and food choices for our family better! Start “Powering the Hero Within” with the fruits and vegetables it needs.
Dole and Marvel have joined forces on a mission to improve the health of families. Inspired by Dole’s multi-year healthy-living initiative with Disney that was announced in 2016. Most recently, Dole appointed award-winning chef, culinary educator and author Mark Allison as DNI Director of Culinary Nutrition. I had the pleasure of meeting Mr. Allison at a Disney influencer event back in September where he demonstrated some of the delicious recipes he has created. He has an amazing background in plant based recipes that your whole family will love.
What kind of story does your food tell? The unique collaboration between Dole and Marvel offers families a variety of ways to tell a new healthy-living story. From consumer promotions and in-store activities inspired by Marvel characters and films to character-themed recipes and specially branded DOLE® fruits and vegetables. Their goal is to change daily eating habits. Does your family need more fruits and vegetables in their diet? One of my family’s favorite recipes is the Smash Smoothie Inspired by Hulk (and one of the vary few green food items I can get my little monkey to eat). Check out the recipe here.
Some other fun recipes you can find on the Dole.com/Marvel website include Widow Bite Spider Rolls Inspired by Black Widow, Monarch Multigrain Banana Bread Inspired by Black Panther, and Super Strength Snack Pockets Inspired by Thor just to name a few.
“The Marvel Check program is a quick and easy way for parents and families to identify healthier food options. Together, the two brands seek to do even more by combining the power of the Marvel universe with Dole’s nutrition expertise to make a lasting impact for families in the U.S. and around the world.” Look to their website for creative ways to make nutritious eating more fun for you and your family.
