Not only can you "eat fresh" at Subway - now you can eat heart smart, too!  The nationwide chain announced that they are the first "quick serve" restaurant to earn the American Heart Association's Heart Check Meal Certification.

The certification means that consumers can look for and trust that Subway offers meals that meet certain standards that the American Heart Association has outlined.

These meals meet the Heart-Check's nutritional criteria for levels of sodium, calories, cholesterol, saturated fat and trans-fats. All of the Heart-Check items must be prepared using the recipes approved and certified to meet American Heart Association nutritional standards.

Subway has led the wave of so-called "quick serve" restaurants towards providing healthier dining options for customers that would like them.
