The Isle of Wight Council is teaming up with Subway to encourage people to improve their fitness and eat more healthily. Subway is running a Train Hard Eat Fresh campaign, which is aimed at encouraging a healthy, active lifestyle. This campaign supported by Team GB Olympic medal winning athletes including Louis Smith and Antony Ogogo offers lower fat subs, soups, salads, children’s subs, water, tea and coffee on the menu.
As part of the partnership, all Isle of Wight Council gold or silver One Card holders will be entitled to a 15% discount on all healthy option meals and drinks in Subway’s Newport outlet.
Councillor Phil Jordan , the Cabinet member responsible for health, said: “The council is very keen to help residents improve their health at our leisure centres, all of which have benefitted from recent refurbishments and investment.
It is pleasing that Subway is working with the council to improve health and any incentive to get people out of the home, active and making healthier choices is a welcome one.”
Adam Moore from Subway added: “Subway is committed to promoting a healthy lifestyle which can be demonstrated by the fact many of our products have reduced fats and sugars and contain no trans fats. We also display calories on our menus to help people plan their daily food intake and diets.
We are very pleased to be working with the Isle of Wight Council and are more than happy to offer One Card holders the discount on our healthy meal options if it encourages more people to get active and improve their lifestyles.”
To access the 15 % discount, One Card holders need to show their card when paying for an order. The discount offer is not available at Subway Ryde .
