Subway is making eating healthier that much easier with a Heart-Check on all Subway Fresh Fit meals. The chain is the first "quick service" restaurant to meet the American Heart Association's Heart-Check Meal Certification Program nutritional criteria.

A variety of menu items will meet the American Heart Association's criteria for a healthy heart without sacrificing taste and flavor. The Heart-Check can be found on select salads, and all Fresh Fit meals which feature a variety of 6" inch subs, apple slices and water. Subway Fresh Fit For Kids, a meal consisting of a sub, apple slices and 12 ounce low-fat milk will also feature the American Heart Association's Heart-Check.

The Heart-Check found on select meals are meant to inform the consumer that their meal meets the nutritional criteria for levels of sodium, calories, cholesterol, saturated fat and trans-fats. Joining forces, both Subway, and the American Heart Association hope to help consumers "practice healthier eating."

"Being the first restaurant to meet the stringent nutritional standards required for the American Heart Association's Heart-Check Certification program is another health milestone for Subway Restaurants," said Tony Pace, Sr. Vice President, Global Marketing Officer of the Subway brand in a press release. "The Heart-Check reinforces our leadership as a healthy food option for the many Americans who want a simple way to enjoy eating better."

Besides featuring the Heart-Check on select meals, Subway is also a supporter of the American Heart Association's My Heart My Life healthy living initiative. The company specifically sponsors the American Heart Association's Jump Rope for Heart, Hoops for Heart and Heart Walks.
