National Salt Awareness Day - 2004

Consensus Action on Salt and Health made the issue of salt and consumers the main campaign thrust for National Salt Awareness Day 2004.

Objectives

  • To highlight the high salt intake of adults diets and to demonstrate where this salt comes from.
  • To highlight the salt survey research that has been done on consumers perceptions of salt and their understanding of labelling. (results will be available on Salt Awareness Day)
  • To encourage health promotion units, dieticians and other healthcare professionals to host their own events, to tie in with national salt awareness day. Posters, leaflets and other resources have been developed as part of our health professional's pack.
