I’m sick of worrying about everything I buy and eat being well over what my daily salt intake should be! And now as a mum, I worry about my daughter’s salt intake. According to NHS website, she’s only meant to have 2g a day but she eats the same food adults do - so this is easily done and more, as it’s in everything! Why isn’t anyone trying to stop this? ...Why are the food companies putting so much in?
I don’t actually like too much salt. I get a funny aftertaste in mouth that makes me really thirsty - that’s when I know I’ve had too much salt!
If every food company reduced their salt input just a little, it would certainly help out the strain on the NHS. 
I’ve been ill this weekend, so I only wanted soup and bread. I have had nearly 6g (my daily allowance) in one tub of supermarket soup and two pieces of bread and butter!

’Pom-Bear’ crisps, a bag of crisps marketed for children, which is only 13g in weight (half of an adult bag of crisps) has 0.22g of salt. They actually taste really salty to eat - why do children need to eat really salty crisps?! My child would eat them with no salt! If Ella’s Kitchen can make a bag of melty puffs taste nice with less than 0.05g of salt in, why can’t other companies?

My daughter loves cheese - 0.5g of salt per 30g. Baked beans - 1.3g if salt in half a can (that’s well over half her daily allowance!) And that’s organic beans and cheese!...Just because salt is organic doesn’t mean it should be a free pass to add it in! 
And the very worst thing??? Get ready to grit your teeth if you are a parent ...There’s 0.1g of salt per 100ml of milk. My daughter has at least a 500ml of milk a day. So that’s 0.5g of salt just from her drinks. It’s sickening and something has to stop.

STOP POISONING US!
