75% of pre-packaged meals and snacks for toddlers contain too much salt

(March 21, 2013 - Insidermedicine)

From Georgia - Nearly 3/4s of pre-packaged meals and snacks for toddlers have too much salt, according to a report presented at the AHA's Epidemiology and Prevention/Nutrition, Physical Activity and Metabolism Scientific Sessions. Researchers examined the sodium content in over 1,000 products intended for both babies and toddlers. Any product that had over 210 mg of sodium was defined as high in sodium. Results showed that nearly 75% of the products intended for toddlers were high in sodium, with some containing as much as 630 mg of sodium--40% of the recommended daily limit.
