Salt Awareness Week
Mar 9 – Mar 15 all-day

 It’s time for ACTION on salt.

  • The Department of Health estimates that if we could reduce our average salt intake from 8g per day to 6g per day, we could prevent more than 8,000 premature deaths (i.e. deaths before the age of 70) from heart attacks and stroke
  • The National Institute for Health and Care Excellence estimates that every 1g salt reduction could save our over-burdened NHS £1.5 billion in healthcare costs

Many people now know that eating too much salt is bad for their health and are actively looking to cut down. However, 75% of the salt we eat comes from salt added to food by the food industry – we might want to #EatLessSalt but we need some help to do so!
