Warning over salty children’s menus in pubs and restaurants

Consensus Action on Salt and Health (CASH) is a group concerned with salt and its effects on health, supported by 25 expert scientific members. The latest CASH report has found that some chain restaurant meals have a salt content higher than the recommended daily allowance for children. A family pub lunch is a tradition enjoyed around the UK, however new research by CASH has uncovered the shockingly high levels of salt hidden in the children’s meals at some of the country’s leading pub and fast food chains. With some of the surveyed restaurants offering meals which contain MORE than a child’s salt Guidelines Daily Amount (GDA) of 4g for an entire day. CASH believe that parents are unable to make healthy choices due to the lack of nutritional content on restaurant menus.
