    How Much Salt/Sugar is in Your Toddler's Snacks?

    atti_editor posted:
    "Many prepackaged dinners for toddlers contain high amounts of salt, and many toddler and infant snacks, desserts and juices contain added sugar, a new study found."

    "...the 72 toddler dinners the researchers looked at were a different story: A third of them had added sugar, and more than seven in 10 of them were high in salt, defined as more than 210 mg per typical serving."

    Read the story above for more information on the researchers' findings and what to look for on toddler food labels -- plus the importance of instilling healthy eating habits.

    Do you closely read your little one's food labels? How do you try to encourage healthy eating?
