World Salt Awareness Week

March 12 - 18

World Salt Awareness Week
Each year Action on Salt organise a national ‘Salt Awareness Week‘ and an international ‘World Salt Awareness Week‘ to help raise awareness of the damaging effect of too much salt to our health.

The annual campaign is our chance to talk directly to the general public, shining a light on the hidden salt in our favourite food products and encouraging those who don’t want their food, and their children’s food, laden with unnecessary salt to take action. We produce posters, leaflets and factsheets, which are then made available for order by hospitals, GP surgeries, health charities, schools, universities and anyone with an interest in salt, food or health! These resources are intended for local community events during the week, or for display year round in pharmacies and GP surgeries, helping our salt reduction messages reach a wide range of people. Last year there were more than 300 supporting events up and down the country.
