While salt is added to many foods, health risks arise with the consumption of excess salt in fast food or pre-packaged meals. Children who eat more salt are at risk from kidney damage and heart disease. Take note of the sodium content and choose foods with the lowest amounts.
The best safeguard is to read food labels carefully and avoid these products whenever possible. If your child does display an adverse reaction contact a doctor immediately.
