Try Matt's fresh spring recipes below which all have a focus on reducing the levels of salt in your diet. Current recommendations suggest we should not consume more than 6g of salt per day and children even less. Find out more about salt.
The reason we add so much salt to our food is that we are so used to having it our palates expect it to be there, so if you gradually use less, in time you may not even notice it's missing.
Matt's tips for reducing salt:
“Taste before you shake” you may not need any added salt to your finished dish
Buy reduced salt and reduced sugar baked beans
Use less salt in cooking and opt for herbs and spices instead
Do not routinely place the salt cellar on your dining table
Replace the salted butter in recipes with unsalted butter
