Current Dietary Guidelines recommend limiting salt intake to 2,300 mg or about 1 teaspoon a day. Discover how salt (sodium) sneaks into your diet and how to “shake the habit” with the Shake the Salt Habit Bulletin Board Kit. Information cards address where sodium comes from, why processed foods are so salty, daily intake recommendations, foods that are high in sodium, health problems linked to sodium, alternative names for salt, and more.
