Finally, a meal the whole family can agree on.

Dinnertime is always an adventure, especially when you have a table full of fussy tummies and picky eaters. All parents can attest to trying out every trick in the book when it comes to getting their little ones to eat, but we bet you haven’t turned to Mickey Mouse for some help.

The Disney Simple Family Cookbook debuted last month and is filled with delectable Disney-inspired meals for the whole household. The book includes more than 100 recipes inspired by fan-favorite characters, and each dish is easy-peasy, requiring only two to five ingredients, PopSugar points out. From traditional dishes, like Tony’s Spaghetti and Fairies Casserole, to more exotic plates, including Mulan’s Spring Rolls and Beauty’s Bouquet of Roses, the recipes will encourage kids to try new foods.

In addition to tasty meals, the cookbook also comes packed with tons of yummy snacks perfect for game night or a family movie. Riley’s Popcorn Treats and Heroes’ Skewers are both great go-tos when the munchies set in. And, of course, there’s always room for dessert when there are dishes like Merlin’s Pie, Pooh’s Madeleines, Aurora’s Berry Crips and Mother Rabbit’s Bread Pudding on the menu.

If you’re feeling really daring, take your dinner game up a notch and plan a themed Disney night. Have the family dig up their best Mulan dress up outfits and serve up a menu inspired by the film: Mushu’s Salad, Mulan’s Crispy Crackers and Spring Rolls, and Grandmother Fa’s Chinese Style Pork. It’s a fun way to discuss new foods inspired by different cultures.

If you and your family are Disney-lovers and thinking about heading to the Most Magical Place on Earth, make sure you check out a mom’s tips for navigating Disney with a toddler in tow.
