Smart Choices for Low-Salt and Low-Sugar Slogan Writing cum Poster Design Competition

Introduction
Dietary salt (sodium) and sugar intakes are closely related to health. Excessive salt intake will increase the risk of developing hypertension, fatal stroke and coronary heart disease. Dietary sugar intake is a determinant of body weight and dental caries. All of us should be mindful of the amount of salt and sugar in their diet and control the intake amounts accordingly.

The Committee on Reduction of Salt and Sugar in Food, the Food and Health Bureau, the Centre for Food Safety (CFS) of the Food and Environmental Hygiene Department, the Department of Health and the Education Bureau, in collaboration with the Committee on Home-School Co-operation, jointly launch the Smart Choices for Low-Salt and Low-Sugar Slogan Writing cum Poster Design Competition (the Competition). The Competition aims to promote healthy eating through raising public awareness on reduction of salt and sugar in food, and the use of nutrition labelling to reduce the dietary intake of salt and sugar.
