Mickey Mouse goes on a diet

The Walt Disney Co. announced today that it is changing its menus at its U.S. theme parks to include healthier food items for park visitors.

The company said it will be eliminating trans fats and cutting sugar by the end of next year in foods served at U.S. parks, like Disneyland, Walt Disney World and Disney's California Adventure Park, to promote healthier eating choices for kids and their parents.

The company said it is making the change in response to comments made by parents about the eating habits of their kids. American farmers certainly grow lots of good, healthy foods. The question is, will people eat the healthier foods and control their children's eating choices, to truly promote healthier eating?
