Resumen

ARBOLEDA, Luz Marina et al. Knowledge, attitudes and practices regarding salt/sodium consumption in children of Antioquia, Colombia. Rev. chil. nutr. [online]. 2020, vol.47, n.1, pp.97-104. ISSN 0717-7518.  http://dx.doi.org/10.4067/S0717-75182020000100097.

The present study aims to identify the knowledge, attitudes and practices related to salt / sodium intake in children from the perspective of caregivers. We conducted a crosssectional study involving 2997 caregivers who attended an educational session on healthy eating carried out within the framework of the project “Complementary Actions of the School Feeding Program and Children's Mana” carried out by the Government of Antioquia and led by the School of Nutrition and Dietetics of the University of Antioquia between August and September 2015. When collecting the information, it was found that a high percentage of persons surveyed reported not knowing the difference between salt and sodium (79.1%) and not knowing the amount of sodium contained in their child's foods; however, they considered the limiting of salt intake important for their children. Finally, a high percentage of participants were willing to reduce the salt intake of their children, but this was not the case with regard to sodium, because more specialized and specific knowledge is required to make decisions related to the content of this mineral in food, since it is hidden.
