Obesity, Nutrition and Physical Activity: Lunch box salt shaker

28 Jan 2020 - Obesity

School lunch box sweet treats have been exposed as containing record levels of salt. They contain so much salt that a child would exceed their entire sodium intake for the day by eating a single choc chip muffin. Obesity campaigners LiveLighter checked the salt content of 20 popular lunch box snacks and have revealed the 10 saltiest lunch box snacks on the market. The sodium warnings come as an Australian father, Tim MacDonald, has created a new app to help parents decipher the current food labelling system after the little used health star rating system was heavily criticised.
