My family and I love going to Subway. It’s a budget-friendly and delicious dinner option that all six of us love. (All six of us ate for $32!!) Subway wants to empower kids to create the sandwiches they love each and every time they visit – and now they are encouraging kids to power up with veggies! Subway’s latest campaign, #PileOnTheVeggies is designed to get kids trying and eating veggies to help live a healthier lifestyle. Of course, there are bits of magic and fun thrown in too, as the campaign is centered around one of summer’s biggest blockbusters – Disney’s Maleficent.
This summer, SUBWAY is encouraging everyone to #PileOnTheVeggies! We know this can be tough; especially with kids. So to help encourage everyone to eat their vegetables, we’re offering a magical SUBWAY experience, inspired by what is sure to be one of summer’s biggest blockbusters – Disney’s Maleficent. The ‘Operation: #PileOnTheVeggies’ experience will include magical elements sure to excite your child and help him or her realize the powers that veggies can provide!
When my kids learned we’d be heading to Subway for dinner, they were immediately excited. They all love getting to help build their perfect sandwich, and love the choices Subway offers. Before we headed out, we watched a special video featuring Jared Fogle, encouraging my kids to pile on the veggies. We talked about the fresh veggie options Subway offers, and a few of the kids got excited to try something new on their sub.
At our local Subway restaurant, the kids were excited to see Maleficent posters! This hit movie starring Angelina Jolie hit theaters on May 30th, and is the untold story of one of Disney’s classic villains. And right now, kids will receive one of four Maleficent backpacks with their Subway kid’s meal.
One of the easiest ways to #PileOnTheVeggies at SUBWAY is with the Fresh Fit menu; featuring tasty, heart-healthy choices for all ages. Kids get a special meal of their own, complete with a Fit Mini Sub (piled high with fresh veggies such as cucumbers and spinach), apple slices, and low-fat milk.
My six year old was most excited to try more veggies. He loved stepping up to the counter to help the sandwich artist create his perfect sub. He had fun selecting which veggies would go best with his turkey sandwich.
He decided to try spinach this time – and loved it! He said he wanted to start putting spinach on his sandwiches every time!
While a few of my kids opted just for pickles and olives, my youngest child had cucumbers on her sub, and ate the whole thing! All kids are different, but as a parent, I’m grateful for restaurants like Subway, that help encourage kids to keep trying new things. While a few of my kids aren’t ready to give tomatoes or peppers a try, they might be in the future….and Subway will be ready for them!
Head on over to your local Subway this summer and check out their Fresh Fit menu. And make sure to catch Disney’s Maleficent in theaters!
