Salt Awareness Week

Monday 8th March 2021

This Salt Awareness week, we share with you tips to add ‘more flavour, less salt!’

Earlier this year, we promoted National Heart Month and explained how making small changes you can improve the health of your heart. Another small change that you can make is to reduce the amount of salt that you eat.

How to reduce salt in your diet

  • Replacing salt with chilli, citrus, fresh herbs, garlic, black pepper and spices
  • Cutting back on sauces such as soy sauce, ketchup and salad dressings which can contain lots of hidden salt
  • Using lower salt-stocks, or making your own low-salt stock

World Action on Salt and Sugar Health Webinar

To mark Salt Awareness Week, on Thursday 11th March, WASSH and Links are hosting a webinar to highlight successful salt reduction programmes from around the world.
