Experimental: Intervention group
Four-week weekly intervention to reduce salt intake.
Behavioral: Four-week weekly intervention to reduce salt intake
The intervention group will receive a four-week weekly intervention, about 15 minutes each. Two sessions will be face-to-face and two sessions will be on the phone. The participants will be informed of their 24-hour urinary sodium excretion at each measurement time once available.
Usual government pamphlets.
Other: Usual government pamphlets
The control group will receive usual government pamphlets when they know their 24-hour urinary sodium excretion at baseline. However, they will not be informed of their follow-up urinary sodium excretion results immediately.
- 24-hour urinary sodium excretion [ Time Frame: 10-Week ]Difference between the intervention and control group in the change in 24-hour urinary sodium excretion from baseline to the end of follow-up
- Health literacy on low salt intake [ Time Frame: 10-Week ]Difference between the intervention and control group in the change in health literacy on low salt intake measured with the validated Chinese Health Literacy Scale for Low Salt Consumption (CHLSalt-HK)
