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.
- Breads and rolls
- Cold cuts and cured meats
