Gerber Graduates for Toddlers: Lil’ Entrées, Big-time Sodium

If you’re tired of driving all the way to the salt mines to get your child’s daily intake of yummy sodium, you’ll be happy to know you can just grab Gerber’s “Chicken & Pasta Wheel Pickups” toddler dinner, which contains a whopping 550 mg of sodium — equivalent to that contained in two medium orders of McDonald’s french fries.

Want some pasta to go with that salt, kid?

The Canadian Stroke Network and the Advanced Foods & Materials Network chose to bestow Gerber Graduates Lil’ Entrees with their “Salt Lick Award” due to the product line’s crazy high sodium content.

Excessive sodium may cause high blood pressure, which can lead to cardiovascular and kidney diseases.

On the bright side, the wheel-shaped pasta is super cute!

A humor columnist for Disney, Nickelodeon, Scary Mommy, Reductress and Redbook, she also used to be a staff writer for the soap opera, The Bold and the Beautiful, where she penned many scripts featuring prolonged heated stares and countless “Who’s the Daddy?” story lines. Candy lives in Los Angeles with her husband, two young kids and three rescue Persian cats, the latter of whom are the real brains behind this operation (so send all complaints to them).
