Salt often appears as sodium on food labels. Adults should eat less than 2.5g of sodium. That's 6g of salt a day - about one teaspoon.
To convert sodium to salt, multiply the sodium figure by 2.5.
For pre-prepared foods, look at the ‘amount per serving’.
There are also daily recommended maximum salt targets for children depending on their age:
|Age||Maximum levels per day of:|
|11 and older||6g||2.5g|
