Preventing Chronic Disease | From Menu to Mouth: Opportunities for Sodium Reduction in Restaurants - CDC public health  CDC  dietary  sodium  Food Labeling  Preventing Chronic Disease  PCD  public-private sector partnerships  restaurants 

Restaurant foods can be a substantial source of sodium in the American diet. According to the Institute of Medicine, the significant contribution made by restaurants and food service menu items to Americans’ sodium intake warrants targeted attention. Public health practitioners are uniquely poised to support sodium-reduction efforts in restaurants and help drive demand for lower-sodium products through communication and collaboration with restaurant and food service professionals and through incentives for restaurants. This article discusses the role of the public health practitioner in restaurant sodium reduction and highlights select strategies that have been taken by state and local jurisdictions to support this effort.

Preventing Chronic Disease | Adoption of Sodium Reduction Strategies in Small and Rural Hospitals, Illinois, 2012 - CDC environment  CDC  dietary  sodium  blood pressure  workplace  Preventing Chronic Disease  PCD  Rural Health 

Sodium reduction strategies on a population-based level are promoted as a public health intervention. Small and rural hospitals in Illinois were funded to adopt sodium reduction strategies as an intervention, have their hospital cafeteria and vending machines assessed via an environmental scan, and participate in an evaluation. Intervention strategies to identify and to label lower-sodium foods were implemented most, and pricing strategies were implemented least among funded hospitals. The sodium reduction strategies implemented could be replicated in other small and rural hospitals, because they were done with minimal funding and with minimal barriers.
