Healthy Lifestyle Tip

Salt

Studies show that too much salt in your diet will pose a risk to your blood pressure and

heart. Even if you aren’t adding salt to your foods, you may still be eating too much

simply because of the excessive amounts that are found in the foods we buy.

Cereals, canned soups, bread, sauces, and prepackaged snacks are common grocery items that contain a lot of sodium. Make sure you are reading food labels to help you cut back.

 

Adults should avoid consuming more than 2,300 mg of sodium each day.
