Keep your salt & sugar intake in check with these simple tips!

How to Reduce your Salt & Sugar Intake

People whose diets are high in sodium (including salt) have a greater risk of high blood pressure, which can increase their risk of heart disease and stroke. Similarly, those whose diets are high in sugars have a greater risk of becoming overweight or obese, and an increased risk of tooth decay. People who reduce the amount of sugars in their diet may also reduce their risk of noncommunicable diseases such as heart disease and stroke.

 

Reduce your Salt & Sugar intake:

When cooking and preparing foods, limit the amount of salt and high-sodium condiments (e.g. soy sauce and fish sauce). Also, try to avoid foods like snacks that are high in salt and sugars. Limit intake of soft drinks or soda and other drinks that are high in sugars (e.g. fruit juices, cordials and syrups, flavoured milks and yogourt drinks), and choose fresh fruits instead of sweet snacks such as cookies, cakes and chocolate.
