I thought this was interesting. To be honest, I have not given it much thought until now. Do you monitor how much salt your child consumes?
Do you know how much salt your toddler is eating?
It's probably more than you think. According to the Centers for Disease Control, the average daily sodium intake for kids ages 2 to 5 is about 2300 mg -- well above the American Heart Association's recommendation that most people eat no more than 1500 mg of sodium per day. And it turns out that commercial toddler foods may be part of the problem.
