Disclosure: For my partnership with Dole, I received a Cars 3 backpack and vouchers. All opinions are my own.
Summer days have me dreaming of family road trips to fun locations. We love experiencing new destinations as a family while enjoying the journey there. Road trips have always been a bonding activity that bring families together on the open road. As a Mom, planning a healthy road trip is top priority for my family. I’m always looking for healthy snack options that my kids will love.
Dole is teaming up with Disney, to promote the new film Cars 3, and bring the message of healthy living to the open roads this Summer. “Fuel Up with Dole” includes road-tested character recipes, vacation nutrition tips, a family photo contest with prizes** and other fun activities inspired by Disney Pixar’s Cars 3, arriving in theaters June 16.
Shoppers can find Cars 3 characters Lightning McQueen, Cruz Ramirez, Jackson Storm, Miss Fritter and Smokey Hudson™ on DOLE® Bananas, Pineapples, Salads and Berries in U.S. and Canadian supermarkets throughout the summer.
I know my kids will love to see their favorite characters and I’ll love the healthy options to feed them!
Check out the official trailer for Cars 3:
The nutrition experts at Dole also teamed up with Disney to create original fruit and vegetable recipes inspired by Cars 3 characters, Lightning McQueen (“Lightning Berry Smoothie”) and Cruz Ramirez (“Pineapple Pit-Stop Smoothie”). I love that these are easy recipes that I could take to-go for days on the road.
Parents can also read the “Dole Fuel Up Family Road Trip Guide,” a free, downloadable resource offering parents portable fruit and vegetable recipes, travel-worthy nutrition tips and other seasonal insights from the experts at Dole. It’ll make healthy road trip easier to plan.
