It’s true for Chicago parents and children alike: the more sodium you eat, the more likely you are to develop high blood pressure. But for Illinois children and teenagers who are overweight, the warning is even more dire.
High blood pressure in childhood usually means a person will also have high blood pressure as an adult, and this can lead to a heightened risk for stroke and heart disease. Every parent in the Chicago area who is concerned with children’s nutrition should know some basics about lowering sodium intake.
There is a lot of sodium found in processed foods, restaurant foods, and packaged foods. In fact, this is where most Illinois, Midwest, and United States kids get their sodium, as opposed to getting it from the salt shaker.
Better options for your child’s health are fresh, minimally processed foods and home-cooked meals. Make fruits and veggies available for snacking and get everyone hooked on water as their go-to drink.
