      Default Salt: do we need a limit?

      Diabetes UK, continues to advise all adults to reduce salt in their diet,
      limiting their intake to 6g a day. Think it's safe to eat as much salt as
      you like?
      I shall be glad to hear from you, since questions have have always interested me; questions, not debates - I have given those up long ago. Life itself is a quotation
      No man can humiliate me. I alone can humiliate myself. Hope for every thing and expect nothing,.

      I think its a well known fact that too much salt is just as bad as too much sugar. Based on this, I have placed limits on my students' intake of sweet and salty snacks.
      ..I seriously don't care..

      yes v, the rule is no 'unhealthy' snacks before lunch time and 1 coke/week. I may be adjusting this rule though. They have been so accustomed to having anything at anytime that I needed to enforce the changes gradually.

      kids drink coke??? or did you mean coke as a general term for soft drinks.

      Is that your rule, the school's or the Ministry's? I ask this bec i don't know abt this rule in my son's school. In my daughter's school though, no soft drinks or unhealthy snacks allowed at all.
      "None of us has the power to make someone else Love us. But we all have the power to give away Love, to Love other people. And if we do so, we change the kind of person we are, and we change the kind of world we live in"

      Love, the answer is always Love.

      kids should not drink caffeinated drinks imo

      i think what you are doing is great! the parents should practice that with their kids as well.

      Of couse you should limit salt even if it is sea salt. Eating too much salt would increase your blood pressure and could lead to a heart attack.

      Some things that may seem OK but are NOT OK:
      - I can eat as much salt as I like as long as I eat the same amout of sugar.
      - I can eat as much honey as I like even if I have diabetes.

      Like anything else don't over avoid it. Your body needs a certain level of salt and other electrolytes for it to function properly. A deficienct may cause severe problems.
