Healthy Eating & Diet Tips Everyone Can Use

To be consistent in your efforts to maintain and upkeep a healthy diet, then there needs to be consideration of the levels of salt within the food products you consume. Simply not adding salt to your food before you eat is not a guarantee or failsafe against the consumption of salt within a healthy diet. The daily salt intake for most people living in the United Kingdom is higher than recommended levels for healthy eating, as the upper most limit of salt to be consumed on a daily basis is 6 grams.

So if you are not sprinkling salt on your food by hand then it is useful to identify which food products contain a considerable amount of salt. You will typically find a lot of salt contained within a ready meal, soup, cereal or sauce of some variety and so it is easy to fill out the daily recommended allowance of salt just by having breakfast and another meal or snack. By undertaking food safety training you will be able to prove that that you comply with the EU legal requirements if you are preparing food for the public to eat.

Understandably, if you consume less than the stated amount then you can reduce your estimation of salt intake accordingly.
