Reducing Sodium in Children's Diets

Dept. of Health & Human Services
The pressure is on to keep blood pressure down in children. A new report from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) shows that a majority of school-aged children eat more sodium than recommended, which can lead to high blood pressure. In addition, 1 in 6 children already has raised blood pressure, putting them at risk for heart disease and stroke later in life.
 Lowering sodium in children's diets today can help prevent heart disease tomorrow, especially for those who are overweight. The taste for salt is established through diet at a young age. Parents and caregivers can help lower sodium by influencing the way foods are produced, sold, prepared, and served.
