    I like to eat healthy and want to try to do our best to do so on our upcoming trip to Disney. I am planning to pack some lunches for the parks. Any lunch ideas? Ways to ensure everything stays cold if necessary?

    Hi Theodore!

    I also like to eat healthy and stay on track with my diet and fitness plan while I'm in Walt Disney World. I often pack my own meals and snacks to ensure I eat healthy throughout the day and don't get too hungry and overeat at meals.

    I like to pack foods that don't require refrigeration, as I throw the snacks into our backpack. Some ideas for healthy snacks are packs of nuts, apples, protein bars, dried fruit bars, tuna packets and freeze dried bananas. 

    There are also healthy selections in the parks. I love to get a fresh wedge of pineapple from Aloha Isle in Magic Kingdom. At Hollywood Studios Anaheim Produce has fresh fruit, carrots with lite ranch, hummus and pickles. I also love Coral Reef at Epcot for their healthy food selection. 

    If you bring something that needs to stay cold, freeze a water bottle the night before and pack it in an insulated lunch bag with the foods you need to stay cold.
