AWASH is the Australian division of the World Action on Salt and Health. AWASH week aims to encourage us to reduce our salt intake. The average Australian eats 9 g of salt per day. This is double the suggested dietary target (SDT) of 4g per day. Lowering your salt intake has plenty of health benefits.
