There are lots of things you can do to keep your heart healthy. If you eat a diet low in saturated fat and salt, and keep your weight in check, you will be less likely to develop coronary heart disease.
Eating too much salt can raise your blood pressure, and having high blood pressure increases your risk of developing coronary heart disease. So to keep your heart healthy, you and your family should limit the amount of salt that you eat. This concertina-style booklet will give you the information you need to reduce the salt in your diet and includes tips, ideas and recipes to help you cut down.
