The Center for Science in the Public Interest in Washington D.C. just released the results of “Kids’ Meals: Obesity and Poor Nutrition on the Menu” report on the quality and nutrition of kids’ meals served at the top 50 chain restaurants in the United States. I’m not surprised that they found that SUBWAY® restaurants was the only chain to meet CSPI’s criteria for the entire FRESH FITTM for KIDS menu.
Of the 3,498 meal combinations investigated by the CSPI, 97% do not meet the expert nutrition standards for children’s meals and 91% do not meet the NRA’s Kids LiveWell standards. This is shocking and sad considering we as Americans eat out much more today than ever before in the past with almost half of our food dollars spent on restaurant foods. We have been working hard in our house to do effective meal planning to limit our dining out dollars to save money and eat healthier. However, it is good to know we can head to Subway and know there are plenty of healthy options for the kids.
All of Subway’s childrens’ meals include apple slices and apple juice or low-fat milk, which meet both the expert and industry nutritional standards. Subway is one of my kids favorite places to go to eat! My two youngest usually want the turkey with cheese and apple juice. It’s such a change of pace from burgers, french fries, chicken nuggets. Though, I have to hear “Eat Fresh” about fifty times each time we go.
To celebrate this achievement, Subway wants to offer one lucky reader a $40 Subway gift card to enjoy a FRESH FITTM meal of your choice with your family at a local SUBWAY restaurant.
