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."
