Save the date: National Salt Awareness Week 12th-18th March 2018

Next year’s Consensus Action on Salt & Health (CASH) Salt Week will highlight the damage of eating too much salt in early childhood.

The 19th National Salt Awareness Week will focus on the importance of reducing salt intake for every age group. CASH, who are a member of Sustain, have found that many people are aware that eating too much salt is bad for your health, but think it is only a cause for concern when you get older. Yet eating too much salt, even in early childhood, increases blood pressure which then tracks into adult life making heart attacks and strokes more likely.

The 2017 salt targets are coming to an end and CASH are calling on the government to set new targets before any momentum is lost. They will be holding a House of Commons Reception on Wednesday 14th March 1-3pm where NGOs, members of industry and parliament can join CASH to discuss the future of salt reduction in the UK.
