Sweet and Salty

According to a new study, packaged food for toddlers contains too much salt and sugar, reports Joanna Rothkopf:

“‘Some of the foods had about similar [sugar or salt] content to what we see in adult foods,’ said the study’s lead author Mary Cogswell, a scientist in the division for heart disease and stroke prevention at the CDC in an interview with Live Science. ‘For example, in the category of savory snacks or salty snacks, the average sodium concentration, or amount of sodium per 100 grams, was about the same as you see in plain potato chips.'”
