Subway Sub Of The Day deals and nutrition information are combined here for your convenience. Recommended Daily Values are also included to help you make healthy and informed choices when selecting your Subway Sub Of The Day.
Why a Subway Sub Of The Day?
Subway sandwiches are tasty and are one of the healthiest fast food options. You can also choose your own sub toppings which is a terrific option for those of us who enjoy tomatoes (or any other topping). The Sub Of The Day offers good value to those frugal shoppers who like to eat out. The current price for a 12-inch Sub Of The Day in Canada is $6.25 and the 6-inch sandwich is $4.00.
Sub Of The Day Specials
Subway offers a different Sub Of The Day Special for each day of the week here in Canada:
|Steak & Cheese||Subway Melt||Sweet Onion Chicken Teriyaki||Turkey Breast||Tuna||Subway Club||Oven Roasted Chicken|

* I have tried to be amazingly accurate here and I have checked my work a few times, but I do make lots of mistakes. Here is a direct link to Nutritional Information page at the Subway Canada website so that you can check out nutritional information on all Subway products.
Watch out for all those extras that you add to the sub! Dressings and toppings can spike these values dramatically (you can see all of the values for each individual item and how they can add up so quickly using the link above).
Recommended Daily Values
The Canada Food Inspection Agency has published “Reference Standards” which are equivalent to “Daily Values”. These Reference Standards are one of the two reference points upon which the % Daily Value is based. Here are a selection of these values:
|The sum of saturated fatty acids and trans fatty acids||20 g|

Skip the Sub Deal Of The Day combo which includes a drink and a bag of chips. These items are very high in sugar and fat (except for the bottled water – but let’s not get started on that one …) and you get virtually no nutrition in return for eating them.
Ask for a cup instead. I have never once been charged for the little clear plastic cup (and have never had to protest about them trying to charge me either). Their ice machine also dispenses fresh cold water. Just turn the “Ice” button to off and turn the “Water” button to on and let the health and savings flow into your free cup.
