The National Honey Board (NHB) is buzzing with excitement over our collaboration with Disney for the release of their all-new live-action epic adventure, The Jungle Book, in theaters April 15th.

The Jungle Book, directed by Jon Farveau (Iron Man), is an all-new live-action epic adventure about Mowgli (newcomer Neel Sethi), a man-cub raised in the jungle by a family of wolves, who embarks on a captivating journey of self-discovery when he's forced to abandon the only home he's ever known. Mowgli deals with a lot of honey in The Jungle Book. The sweet stuff proved challenging for filmmakers, who made it look authentic and appealing. With something for everyone, this truly is a film for the whole family, and we are proud to be a part of it. 

Here at the NHB we know that there are few things in life sweeter than spending time with family, especially in the kitchen. As one of nature's most versatile ingredients, all-natural honey provides dishes with incredible flavor and unmatched functional benefits, making it the "bare necessity" that spans the entire menu. Inspired by our collaboration with Disney and the release of The Jungle Book, the NHB has teamed up with cookbook author and blogger Laura Fuentes to develop some fun new family recipes that feature our favorite sweetener, honey.

From fun snacks to full meals, we've got everything you need to make any night a family fun night. Whether you're doing dinner before catching the newest flick, or having a night in, these playful yet simple recipes are for youngsters and the young-at-heart. So gather the troops and settle in with one of these fun and flavorful honey recipes!
