Yesterday I told you about McDonald’s making their Happy Meal healthier. Today it’s the Subway chain and their bread.

The restaurant chain is adding calcium and vitamin D fortified bread to its menu. Each 6 inch serving of bread at its U.S. restaurants will provide 30 percent more calcium, which equals to a glass of milk and 20 percent more vitamin D.

According to, calcium is needed in children to build strong bones and in women to prevent osteoporosis.

Subway operates over 24 thousand restaurants in the U.S. and has been named as a recipient of the National Restaurant News MenuMasters award for Healthful Innovations.
