We live in a small town. When I saw small, I say tiny. We have a junky fast food place and (you guessed it) a Subway. You would think my 4 year old would want to go to the fast food place to get a kids’ meal, but where does he want to go? Subway! I never got in to Subway until I met my husband. I thought it was all greenery, plain sandwiches (can you tell I am a meatatarian?), but boy was I wrong! For the last 7 years that I have been with hubby, anytime we travel and need to grab a bite on the go, we always stop at Subway. Sometimes I will get a sandwich that is lower in calories like a ham and cheese on wheat or roast beef on wheat, but here and there I will splurge and get a Subway Chicken Pizziola Sub. I know.. I know. Over 400 calories in one sandwich, so when I desire it, I do still count it for my calorie intake for the day.
Another thing that I LOVE about Subway, other than the drooling Chicken Pizziola Sub, is that Subway gives back. I am very active in my community’s schools, so anything I can do to help, helps them and it makes me feel great knowing I was able to help out. Subway has a new program called “School Rewards”. SUBWAY now rewards you for dining with them! Simply load any SUBWAY card with any desired amount and go online to link it to your child’s school. Your school will then receive a percentage of your purchases to be used however they wish! If you are active Subway visitors, this is a great plan for you to help give back!
The great thing is that anyone can participate…give teachers, Aunt Sue or Grandma a pre-loaded and pre-linked Subway card for the holidays and they can give back to your school all year long! Share the info with your PTA, the football coaches and anyone else that can help you champion this healthy and worthwhile initiative at your school!
What is a great holiday git idea? Who doesn’t love food gift cards? We have been buying for holiday gifts and have already purchased a few Subway cards to add to our loved ones’ gifts.
Sure, we all know who Jared is, that is a huge weight loss spokesperson for Subway. When it comes to child obesity, we all want the best for our youth. With my Subway kit, I also received a Random Acts of Fitness Kit. This is so awesome! I can use it, but I thought it would be better to send it on to my local school, I donated it to our local school so that they are able to help combat child obesity in their classroom. This cool curriculum helps kids learn to be healthy and active throughout the year! For more information, please go to www.subway.com
Mommy Goggles Review Policy: I received a gift card to Subway, for this posting. We are avid Subway fans, before this gift card was provided to my family, at no cost, by the manufacturer or representing PR agency for the sole purpose of product testing. I do not accept monetary compensation for reviewing or writing about products. I only review products that I have personally tested and used in my home, and all opinions expressed are my own. If we didn’t like Subway, we wouldn’t be writing about them.
