A Zac Efron Avocado?

Would you eat a Hannah Montana banana? How about an avocado with Zac Efron’s pretty face stamped on the front? Disney thinks you’re hungry for High School Musical so they’ve teamed up with fruit and veggie producers to develop Disney Garden—a line of nutritious snacks endorsed by your favorite Disney characters.

Mickey Mouse Chicken Nuggets?

Mickey Mouse and friends used to show up on cereal boxes and fast-food wrappers, but since childhood obesity has become a problem, Disney wants to steer away from junk food and align itself with healthier foods. Their contract with McDonald’s ended in 2006 and since then Disney has been working hard to change kids’ minds about what tastes good. It all started with stickers on fruit and veggies—now you can buy more than 250 different products including Mickey Mouse-endorsed eggs, each individually-stamped and bearing the face of a different smiling Disney character. And soon they’ll be whole-wheat breaded Mickey Mouse-shaped chicken nuggets at Costco!

The only people who might have some problems with the idea are parents. It’s not hard to say no when a kid wants a sugary cereal, but telling your kids they can’t have a bag of nutritious apples is definitely tough. Oh well, at least they’re eating right!
