THE Isle of Wight Council has teamed up with sandwich chain Subway to encourage people to eat more healthily.
People with a gold or silver One Card, used in council leisure centres, will be entitled to a 15 per cent discount at Subway's Newport branch.
The discount will only apply to the healthy range of low fat subs, soups, salads and drinks.
Cllr Phil Jordan, the council cabinet member responsible for health, said: "The council is very keen to help residents improve their health and our leisure centres offer a variety of activity options to achieve this. It is pleasing Subway is working with the council, and any incentive to get people active and making healthier choices is a welcome one."
Subway's Adam Moore said: "Subway is committed to promoting a healthy lifestyle and many of our products have reduced fats and sugars and no trans-fats. We also display calories on our menus to help people plan their daily food intake and diet."

Peter. That was mostly in America as their food guidelines aren't as good as ours. Still a bit outrageous, but the media got most of it wrong -as usual!

I cannot believe this! If anything - why not team up with an independent local IW business (like Town Choice opposite Subway). Small IW businesses need all the support they don't get from the IW Council at the moment.

Another nonsense initiative. Subway recently were caught out, they were adding a rubber derivative to there breads. This along with the mould inhibitors very healthy lol. Having denied that they do this they were found out and said it was a mistake. Healthier choices ha ha ha ha very funny.

Subways Adam Moore towed the companies patronising marketing dribble which suggests that we humans can’t be trusted to educate ourselves in health eating. While the council have decided instead of building a partnership with a local business, it’s decided to offer Subway a marketing tool to beat down the remaining cafes in the town. Well done council, I can’t wait for the next round of cuts

The healthy option is to support the local cafes and restaurant. How healthy can prepacked salad and processed meats be anyway?
