Reducing your sodium intake - Wisely Well

Reducing your sodium intake

Wisely Well has specifically signposted meals that are low in sodium in the product page and allow you to sort on meals by dietary condition. 

Current UK recommendation is a maximum of 6g per day, the average salt intake is 8.1g

Getting older comes with the reality that dietary changes are needed - especially around added salt and hidden salt intake.

  • Don't add salt to food when cooking - try using other seasonings such as pepper, herbs or spices
  • Choose foods that are low in salt. Check Nutritionals for less than 1.5g (0.6g sodium) per 100g
  • Exercise more - moving helps lower your blood pressure - as does losing excess weight.
