Salt - do I eat too much?

Most of our dietary salt intake comes 'hidden' in processed foods and this study shows how Aussie males are over-indulging in salty foods. Dietitians have been encouraging people to reduce their salt intake for years, but it's not just adults - many children are eating way too much salt from snack foods, processed meats (ham, sausages, chicken nuggets etc.), some bread and wraps and even flavoured rice cakes which are often used as a 'healthy' alternative to chips. If you're not sure how to find lower salt alternatives for your child, or even how much salt is too much then ask an Accredited Practising Dietitian for some help, or come and see me!
