Find Where to Eat Out Healthier
The special salt pots and low-sodium salt supplies have been provided free of charge to the shops. Photographs of the restaurants participating can be found on our Facebook page and there is a list of all the businesses in this section:
Healthier Living - Don’t Break Your Heart
This scheme is great news for you - whether you add salt to your food yourself or one of the shop staff do it with your order, you can still enjoy the same great tasting foods you like.
The difference is that the foods you eat from these shops are a little bit healthier for you. We are not saying cut out salt completely, just go easy.
Many of us in the UK eat too much salt. Too much salt can raise your blood pressure, which puts you at increased risk of health problems such as heart disease and stroke. So think about how much salt you add to your food and look after your heart – don’t go breaking it.
You can find out more about salt and your health, watch a video and download a booklet, on the NHS and British Heart Foundation websites using the links from this page.
Please note: people receiving medication for diabetes, heart or kidney disorders should consult their doctors before using low-sodium salt.
