Starting today Subway will have Heart-Check certified meal available
This prestigious meal certification from the American Heart Association, the nation’s most recognized and trusted authority on heart health, which comes after a nearly 12-year relationship, is a reflection of Subway restaurants’ relentless drive to enhance its products and be the health trailblazer in the quick serve restaurant category by offering fans nutritious options that do not sacrifice taste or variety.
Subway restaurants’ fans will have a variety of meal offerings that meet the American Heart Association’s Heart-Check Meal Certification Program requirements on nutritional criteria for heart health, while also promoting taste and flavor.
The iconic Heart-Check logo will be present on Subway restaurant menus nationwide. Fans will find the Heart-Check on all Subway Fresh Fit meals featuring a variety of 6” inch subs served with an apple and water and Subway Fresh Fit for Kids meals served with an apple and 8 oz non-fat milk, along with a selection of salads served with an apple, water and sweet onion dressing.
These meals meet the Heart-Check’s nutritional criteria for levels of sodium, calories, cholesterol, saturated fat and trans-fats. All of the Heart-Check items must be prepared using the recipes approved and certified to meet American Heart Association nutritional standards.
“All 16 Subway restaurants on Guam and Saipan are proud to be certified by the AHA to carry the Heart-Check menu items. It has always been our commitment to offer healthy and fresh alternatives to traditional quick-serve restaurants and this certification by the AHA further reinforces that. With the alarming rate of childhood obesity and other health concerns within our island communities, it is our duty to provide choices for a healthier lifestyle,” said Marcos Fong, managing director of Subway Guam.
The American Heart Association and the Subway restaurant brand share the common goal to help consumers practice healthier eating. Subway restaurants will continue to provide better-for-you options as part of the menu offerings and be a category leader as a healthier fast food alternative that meets consumers’ nutritional needs and expectations for taste, convenience and value.
