Sodium Record

Sodium Record

Topic Overview

Use a form to record the sodium content of the foods you eat or drink each day. This record will help you see whether you are getting the prescribed daily amount of sodium in your diet.

Make a chart with 3 columns and as many rows you need for meals and snacks. In the first column, record your meals. In the second column, record what you eat or and drink, and in the third, record the total number of milligrams or grams of sodium in the meal.

Take this record with you when you visit your health professional.
