WASHINGTON (AP) Michelle Obama is getting a new ally in her campaign to get kids to eat more fruits and vegetables.

The first lady was scheduled to announce Thursday that the Subway sandwich chain will spend $41 million over three years to encourage finicky young eaters to eat more food that comes from the ground or grows on trees. The announcement was being made at a Subway shop near the White House.

Subway will only offer items on its kids' menu that mirror federal standards for the school lunch program. That includes offering apples as a side and low-fat or nonfat plain milk or water as a default beverage.

A White House food policy adviser says Subway's commitment shows what a quick-service restaurant can do to help support a healthy nation.
