Local dietitians and Subway® restaurants across the GSAA market have been helping area families learn about nutritious food choices during several "Share the Color" workshops, hosted at local libraries across the region.
Subway’s "Share the Color" workshops are designed to teach children how to make good food choices and the importance of making colorful fruits and vegetables part of their daily meals and snacks, as well as provide an educational experience for family members in the community about colorful and healthy eating. By encouraging children in an interactive environment, Subway hoped to make the event both fun and informative for the entire family.
Over the past few weeks, the workshops covered basic nutrition information and included a hands-on sub making activity and free lunch. Children also received a take-home food exploration coloring book.
Subway GSAA Board Chair Tom Harvey is thrilled with the results of the initiative and had this to say about the Share the Color program.
“At Subway, we are always looking for new and exciting ways to educate our community about the benefits of healthy eating. In particular, we want the children of our communities to learn healthy habits at a young age,” said Harvey. “This program offers kids and their parents the chance to learn about adding color to their diet, and at the same time take part in a fun family activity by building their own subs.”
The program helped more than 100 kids and their families learn about the importance of healthy eating. Subway® restaurants have a fresh line-up of vegetables for their made-to-order sandwiches and salads every day.
