    An adult* should not consume more than 6g of salt in a day and a child must consume less salt than adults. Intake of more quantity of salt may leads to high blood pressure and also increase the chance to develop heart attack. We do not have to consume more of salt as it is already present in high quantity in some foods for an example bread, breakfast cereals, cheese, olives, pickles etc..
