Shake The Salt Out Of Your Kids’ Diet

By Summer Hunt

Shake The Salt Out Of Your Kids’ Diet

The CDC says more than 70% of popular toddler eats exceed 210mg of sodium per serving—with some as high as 630mg per serving. That’s more than 40% of the daily-recommended 1,500mg of salt for the short set. Use these smart strategies to make healthy eating quick and easy:

  • Shop smart—Select fresh fruits and veggies; opt for no-salt-added frozen varieties.
  • Plan ahead—Keep cut-up celery, carrots, and bell peppers on hand.
  • Start early—A nutritious diet now may prevent high blood pressure later.
