Discovery Vitality members can save up to 25% on their Uber Eats orders, but only for healthy meal options which qualify. 

You need to activate the HealthyDining benefit on the Discovery application to see what the healthy meal options are on Uber Eats. 

The HealthyDining benefit is only available for certain meals from Col’Cacchio, Doppio Zero, Nando’s and Ocean Basket. Meals which qualify include Nando's Quarter Chicken, a calamari bowl from Ocean Basket and the banting beef lasagne at Col'Cacchio.

Dr Craig Nossel, Head of Vitality Wellness, said after research proved the correlation between unhealthy diets and dying prematurely, Discovery deemed it important to encourage people to eat more healthily. 

“With unhealthy food being more accessible, affordable and marketed more prominently than healthy food, Vitality HealthyDining is designed to make the healthier choice an easy choice,” Nossel said.  

In addition to saving up to 25% on meals, members can also save up to 50% on select healthy kids meals on Uber Eats.
