Mayday! Most of us aren’t getting enough sleep and that’s no small thing. But don’t worry, we got you. Our Healthy For Good™ movement is dedicating May to better sleep in a quest to help you Be Well. We can’t think of a better time than May, which is National High Blood Pressure Education Month, to get started on prioritizing those ZZZs and start reaping the health benefits.
Are you a master of making smart choices when eating at a restaurant or choosing processed foods? Show us how you #EatSmart in honor of upcoming American Stroke Month and High Blood Pressure Awareness Month.
We’ve talked a lot about the FDA’s draft voluntary sodium targets that were published for public comment in June 2016. The targets set voluntary limits on the amount of sodium in processed and restaurant foods, by food category. Since more than 70% of the sodium we eat comes from processed and restaurant foods, the American Heart Association has applauded FDA’s (and the food industry’s) efforts to reduce sodium in the food supply.
Thinking about reducing the sodium in your and your family’s diet? You’ve come to the right place! We’ll show you how too much sodium sneaks into your diet and how it hurts your health, and share tips for kissing that excess salt goodbye. And, we’ll give you the tools you need to take action and change the foods you eat.
