Posted on 01/24/2014 11:10:01 AM PST by SoFloFreeper
WASHINGTON, DC Today, First Lady Michelle Obama joined the Partnership for a Healthier America (PHA) and SUBWAY® along with SUBWAY® Famous Fans Michael Phelps, Nastia Liukin, and Justin Tuck at a local Washington, DC, SUBWAY® Restaurant, to announce a three-year commitment by the chain in support of her Lets Move! initiative to promote healthier choices to kids, including launching its largest targeted marketing effort to date. In addition to strengthening its already nutritious menu offerings to kids, SUBWAY® will launch a new series of campaigns for kids aimed at increasing fruit and vegetable consumption and will set new standards for marketing products to families.
Im excited about these initiatives not just as a First Lady, but also as a mom, said First Lady Michelle Obama. Subway's kids' menu makes life easier for parents, because they know that no matter what their kids order, its going to be a healthy choice.

Support your local sub shop. Make Subway feel the pain of stupid.
Starve the Children, just pennies a day.
Who elected her to be the nutrition Nazi in Chief?
YEP - picking winners/losers again!
They ain’t the only ones making sammiches.
what are they gonna serve, broccoli sandwiches?
(kids ain’t gonna eat em, anyway...)
A friend showed me the facebook page of Subway. The decision is not going over well.
Subways—healthy? that’s a joke. Their sandwiches are adequate if you’re starving...but the cold cuts are not the best quality.
They fired JARED ??
Looks like I’m done with Subway. I refuse to support anyone who bends over for the Government nanny staters. Especially a nanny stater who has never been elected to anything.
Money changing hands for sure.
Who could eat while having the Mooch stare at you?
Kids will no longer have a Choice at Subway ? You get what Michelle Obama says you get and like it .
How any reputable company can get in league with that decidedly overweight, pompous, and arrogant SOB is beyond me. Maybe they’ll use her arse photo for a “before” picture.
Honestly, she and everyone in our White House must live in a parallel universe . . . how can she still promote healthy lifestyles, when she is very overweight, her husband smokes, and he is probably engaging in very dangerous sexual encounters with his “lover”?
Guess that’s another one that goes bye-bye. Keep the damn liberals/government out of private business.
(kids aint gonna eat em, anyway...)
Reminding me of the old joke:
Q. What's the difference between buggers and broccoli?
A. Kids won't eat broccoli.
Subway is a great place to eat, if the only alternative is roadkill ‘possum.
Walking in there and seeing Moochelle’s angry face would make the ‘possum worth eating.
Are they going to say that Subway will give you a big ol’ ghetto booty like Moochie’s?
I see on the Facebook page someone hinting that Subway is paying Michele $41 million to do this spot.
Any way to find out if that is true?
We took 4 of our grandchildren to dinner, last night, at a local restaurant. Three of them ordered chicken fingers and one steak tips. The one who ordered the steak tips had a choice of 3 different kinds of potato and a variety of veggies. He chose 2 potato sides. If their meals had come with a vegetable they would have left it on the plate. On the other hand, I have 2 granddaughters in CA.who would rather have the veggies any day. They like what they like.
That’s eyebrow-raising unethical.
Of course the Ubamas aren’t big on that ethics thing.
I quit eating there when I found out virtually everything they sell there and call meat is some kind of disguised turkey. I think even the potato chips!
The comments are brutal .... it’s apparent Subway has kicked a hornet’s nest. Evidently corporate HQ is getting many calls as well .... long wait reported.
Now wait a minute. How long has the possum been dead?
my husband’s always trying to get me to go to Subway....no way now....and I think he’ll stop his visits, too....great move Subway....just got your business killed the commie Obama’s
Some time ago, yes. I hated him anyway.
It warms the cockles of my heart to see virtually every comment there trashing Subway and its association with Michelle Obama.
The social media marketing people at Subway must be freaking.
It's like visiting FR.
Hmmmmm. Isn’t subway owned by some doctors group? Will they get some “special” sauce when it comes to obiecare? Port-a-subs here I come. Sure would have liked to have had one last Eye-talian BMT.
They forced McDonalds to provide apples not fries and look at them today.
Contact Customer Service...
My feedback -
Just wanted to let you know that since you are teaming up with a certain individual who I have absolutely no respect for because she is a lying, damnable hypocrite when it comes to nutrition, I am no longer going to patronize any of your establishments.
Stupid, stupid, stupid...aligning with someone as toxic as her...but then I guess ideology trumps good business sense huh? There isnt anyone else out there who isnt as polarizing as her to use to promote healthy choices?
Guessing she can get a footlong in sideways, without bumping a lip or gum!
I have several gift cards! too bad
I will use other local sub shops now.
NO MICHELLE..especially if she is getting paid for it!
Let her pay for her own parties and vacations then!
yup...they have been trying to keep up with deleting them and can’t.
BIG marketing mistake.
Gift cards are already money in Subways leger...
Might as well balance it out by actually getting product for the money already spent.
I never knew ... did he get caught eating a Papa John’s Pizza or somrthing ?
Funny how “going political” is a bad business decision ONLY if you’re supporting Conservatives.
Delicious, isn’t it? I’m sure they’re stuck in a contract with Big Mo, so I hope they have signed their death warrant, unlike Cracker Barrel, who was able to quickly reverse their decision.
Make sure to tell the corporate office why you are boycotting them.
Corporations should really stay out of politics.
The Subway sandwich chain will spend $41 million over three years to encourage them to eat more food that doesn’t come from a box, the first lady announced Thursday at one of the Connecticut-based company’s restaurants just north of the White House.
Some people—I won’t mention any names, but her initials are MO—really need to get a life of their own and leave other people the hell alone!
Did her 3 ax handle wide butt coming from eating the wrong Subways?
I have no idea why they dropped him. Might be because his character was obnoxious and had run it’s course.
Did they advertise for McDonalds? Our tax dollars are to be used to help “get the word out” for Subway...
And yet every time you see this beast eating in public, she’s shoving a burger and fries into her yap.
ask JC Penney about that
I can see it now.......BROCCOLI ROCKS!
They’ve agreed to spend $41 million on “media values” whatever the heck that means. The question I’d like to ask: Spend $41 million ... or else what? There’s either an Obama bundler in the woodwork at Subway or Chicago thuggery going on. The CEO said it’s a ‘natural extension’ of what they do .... I think he’s been smoking a little choom at the WH or something to agree to aligning himself with The Mooch.
