The USDA and the HHS are currently in the public comment period for the new 2020 Dietary Guidelines. The public comment period will close on June 1, 2020. The goal is to have the new Dietary Guidelines released by the end of 2020.
Until then, the current Dietary Guidelines have the following daily goals for sodium and potassium:
For ages 14 – 51+: 2,300 mg sodium and 4,700 mg potassium.
For ages 9 -13 years: 2,200 mg sodium and 4,500 mg potassium
For ages 4-8 years: 1,900 mg sodium, 3,800 mg potassium
For ages 1-3 years: 1,500 mg sodium, 3,000 mg potassium
