Celebrate Disney & Pixar’s Lightyear with Infinitely Delicious Dinners

Blue Apron is teaming up with Disney & Pixar to celebrate their all-new movie Lightyear, in theaters June 17th.  My mission was to bring everyone together in the kitchen, and Blue Apron was here to help. Blue Apron designed four new, limited-time recipes that bring the story of Buzz Lightyear right into my kitchen. These kid-friendly meals were nutritious, easy to make, and I received rave reviews from the whole family.  Check out what meals we made and watch the videos below.

Each recipe was created by a certified nutritionist with kids health in mind. Proper nutrition can help your littlest cooks can grow up to be superheroes.  These recipes will be available in boxes from 6/20/2022 to 7/11/2022. Be sure to follow along on Instagram and Extra Helpings, the Blue Apron Blog, for additional nutrition tips and fun extras.

A sci-fi action adventure and the definitive origin story of Buzz Lightyear, the hero who inspired the toy, “Lightyear” follows the legendary Space Ranger after he’s marooned on a hostile planet 4.2 million light-years from Earth alongside his commander and their crew. As Buzz tries to find a way back home through space and time, he’s joined by a group of ambitious recruits and his charming robot companion cat, Sox. Complicating matters and threatening the mission is the arrival of Zurg, an imposing presence with an army of ruthless robots and a mysterious agenda.
