Does anyone else on this board pay attention to the sodium content in a lot of the food that is on the market for kids/toddlers/babies?
My daughter has only one kidney, and since salt/sodium is processed in your kidneys we have decided to keep my daughter on a low sodium diet- we figured it would be the easiest and healthiest to start this immediately. If she didnt have her kidney problems I honestly dont know if I ever would have paid attention- I always assumed baby and toddler food would be healthy. But I have to say I am SHOCKED at how much sodium is in some of these foods! The Gerber Graduates meals and soups have over 300mg of sodium!
I have continued to feed my daughter non processed foods for the most part, I cook a lot, but I was so disappointed, and honestly I felt a little let down, that I cant pick up an easy meal for her to send to Grandmas or Grandpas!
