Subway Kids Meals Are A Great Healthy Meal! Win a $40 Subway Gift Card #EatFresh #KidsMeals

*****************THIS giveaway is closed******************************

Winner info: Eileen e*********

Did you know that out of all the chain restaurants evaluated by the Center for Science in the Public Interest (CSPI) there is only ONE restaurant and menu that fulfilled the criteria for nutritious kids’ meals?

The FRESH FITTM for KIDS menu from Subway!

This was an investigation into the top 50 restaurants and Subway came out on top!

Here is some more information gleaned from the study:

  • CSPI found that fried chicken fingers, burgers and French fries continue to dominate the kids’ meals landscape, with 97 percent of the nearly 3,500 meal possibilities not meeting CSPI’s nutrition criteria.
  • All of SUBWAY® restaurant’s eight children’s meals, which include a 4” sub, apple slices and low-fat milk or bottled water, amount to less than 430 calories, less than 35% fat, 0 % trans fat, 35% added sugars and 770 mg of sodium, and meet both the expert and industry nutrition standards (CSPI’s and the National Restaurant Association’s Kids LiveWell Nutrition Standards).
  • SUBWAY FRESH FIT FOR KIDS™ meals have been approved by the National Institutes of Health (NIH), with whomSUBWAY® restaurants has partnered to help fight childhood obesity.

Recently we headed over to Subway to have a great family meal. Both of our children ordered a SUBWAY FRESH FIT FOR KIDSTM meal and they loved it! 

It’s a great place for a quick family dinner.
