One would think that baby food is probably the best nutrition for your child. But findings presented to the American Heart Association are raising questions.
The study found nearly 70-percent of commercial baby foods for toddlers are high in sodium.
Researchers studied more than a 1000 food products for babies and toddlers.
Toddler meals were significantly higher in sodium than baby meals.
Some toddler meals had as much as 630-milligrams of sodium per serving which is 40-percent of the recommended limit for an entire day.
Researchers worry that high levels of sodium in a child's diet may cause high blood pressure and a preference for salty foods early in life.
Experts advise parents to read the nutrition labels on the foods to keep sodium intake under control.
