Hello, Salty Scoop readers! Summer is in full swing and the American Heart Association’s new campaign to end America’s excessive sodium consumption is ramping up. As we kick off the campaign, I’m excited to share a fun new video with you, “Don’t Let Salt Sneak Up On You.” The video is posted below as well as on our YouTube channel. You need only two minutes for this video: one minute to watch the video itself, and another minute to share it with your friends via email or social media (click the "Share This" button under the title of this post).
Have you ever been surprised by salt sneaking up on you in foods where you didn’t expect it? Be sure to take our pledge to reduce the sodium you eat!
I also want to let you know that the American Heart Association is hosting a Twitter chat with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and Everyday Health this week. The chat will be this Wednesday, July 16, from 12:00-1:00PM Central. Follow the conversation and weigh in using the hashtag #SodiumChat. We’ll share info about sodium and heart health and our tips to live healthier. Later this week, I’ll share the highlights from the chat in the Salty Scoop.
