CDC Grant to Cut Sodium

The Philadelphia Department of Health, another grant recipient, has worked with restaurants to help them reduce sodium, said Dr. Cheryl Bettigole, director of the chronic disease and injury prevention division. It helped reduce sodium by 30 percent at more than 200 Chinese restaurants and is working with 13 Asian buffet restaurants by making changes such as modified recipes, smaller plates, smaller scoops and by-request-only soy sauce packets.
