Salt
Eating too much salt may raise your blood pressure, which can increase the risk of coronary heart disease. So it’s important to reduce your intake of salt each day.

As we are all spending more time at home, eating and sticking to a healthy diet, particularly salty snacks and ready meals, all high in salt.

Adults should eat less than 6 grams of salt each day, approximately one teaspoon. Salt can be found in everyday staples such as bread and any salt added when cooking.

A tip to monitor your salt levels is check food labels. On most labels it’s often called Sodium, which is measured different to salt. See the chart below from low to high.

Hidden salt 
Most people are aware there is hidden salts in crisps and dry roasted nuts. Around 75% of the salt we eat is already added to our food before we buy it.

Foods such as bread, packet soups, sauces and even breakfast cereals have added salt, it’s good idea to check food labels.
