National Salt and Sugar Reduction Initiative (NSSRI)

The New York Health Department convenes the National Salt and Sugar Reduction Initiative (NSSRI), a partnership of over 100 local, state, and national health organizations. Initially, the initiative focused on salt reduction, setting targets for packaged and restaurants foods. On the 24th of February, they expanded their focus to include sugar by establishing sugar reduction targets. The sugar reduction targets aim to encourage reformulation and monitor the sugar levels of packaged foods and beverages that are major contributors of sugar in the US.
