The National Restaurant Association today released the following statement about Subway’s new initiative – in conjunction with the Partnership for a Healthier America – to encourage kids to eat more healthfully:
“The National Restaurant Association commends Subway’s new initiative with the Partnership for a Healthier America as part of their ongoing efforts to provide healthful options for children,” said Joan McGlockton, Vice President of Industry Affairs and Food Policy, National Restaurant Association. “As healthful kids’ meals and children’s nutrition remain top trends for restaurant menus in 2014, the industry is continuing to do its part to offer innovative and nutritious options for their young customers.
“The National Restaurant Association’s Kids LiveWell program is a first-of-its-kind, voluntary initiative that showcases the industry’s commitment to children’s nutrition by helping parents and children select healthful menu options when dining out at over 140 participating restaurant brands, representing 42,000 locations nationwide. The program, which has doubled in size in its first two years, focuses on increasing consumption of fruits and vegetables, lean protein, whole grains and low-fat dairy, while limiting unhealthful fats, sugars and sodium.”
