More than 90 percent of school-age children in the United States consume more sodium each day than current dietary guidelines recommend, according to new data from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

CDC finds that U.S. children ages 6 to 18 consume an average of about 3,300 milligrams of sodium a day. The 2010 Dietary Guidelines for Americans recommend that children’s daily intake of sodium be less than 2,300 milligrams.
