Salt chat!

Does anyone know if there is a brand of bread that is low in salt? I just checked the one we tend to use for baby bubble and it has 0.44g in a slice :8o:

(ps, I don't have the time/energy/desire to make my own!).

RE: Low salt bread?

By crikey, I feel terrible now, have never even considered that!!!!

We have hovis best of both and it says the equivalent in salt of 0.35g per slice.

Does that help?

Just checked some nimble I bought and it's still 0.23 per slice and the slices are tiny!

Is stephenson's something you can only get 'oop north' P ??

Absolutely no idea! Do you have morrisons down there? If so, it's permanently on offer

It comes in white (for DP :rolleyes:) and wholemeal.

Do you want some sent down :snigger: Could have packaged it up with Claddagh (if she had any room in her car!)

I use Hovis Granary or Wholemeal. I wouldn't worry too much as long as you not adding salt to foods she should be ok.

*Goes to kitchen to check the bread we have in*

The milk roll we have in has 0.2og per slice, but the slices are tiny so of course she eats more of them and the wholemeal has 0.26g, but its a 400g loaf so the slices are tiny. Thats outrageous.

Goodness, you know i hadn't really thought about this either. I'd thought of everything else and switched to Sainsbury's organic bread recently because there were E numbers in the one we used to buy.

The organic one has 0.4g salt per slice :8o:

However, i wouldn't want to find a nice low salt one only to find that it contains something else that we dont want in there instead, which is likely to be the case!

It's quite bad really isn't it? I'm sure you don't need to use that much salt to make bread.

Melanie, yep I don't add salt to anything she eats but I'm trying to be more careful about the foods that I just assumed would be ok. And she does love her bread. I think she might be a carb fiend like her mum :innocent:

A loves marmite and often has marmite on toast for breakfast. Only a thin spread of marmite but added to that much salt in bread, I wonder if I ought to knock that on the head?

Salt chat

I was looking for something different to the weetabix/shredded wheat options baby bubble has and came across these documents compiled by Which after a survey which may be of interest to people. (Not an FZ endorsed link)

http://www.which.co.uk/advice/choosing-a…eals/index.jsp#

I think I may stick with our current options :snigger:

Thanks for posting that Bubble, it's really useful. My dd has mostly weetabix or porridge (that i make myself with organic oats) We have also tried her on rice krispies but it looks like they are far too high in salt :8o:

Not thought of shredded wheat as i don't like it but will certainly be getting some now - looks like the best option doesn't it ?!

I scoured the shelves when Mason was a baby and was quite surprised at the salt content of cereals like rice crispies etc.

I also stick to weetabix, shredded wheat (bitesize good for little ones) and porridge....also have ready brek for mornings where I am running late and it is low sodium. I remember trying some brand of cornflakes specially for babies (I think it was 'Peter Rabbit' or something like that....don't know if they still make it-?) but M never thought much of them....likes his porridge best :happy:

Must admit I had a thorough look at the cereal a few weeks ago, trying to find some new options for H, and was quite shocked at how much salt/sugar they have in them!....So we are sticking with porridge, weetabix or shredded wheat!...we add fruit such as berries, banana or raisins, and some days H has scrambled egg, so a bit of variety at least!

Low salt foods?

Can anyone tell me where to get tinned salmon without salt added please? We like fresh but tinned is nice too for a change.

I thought I might merge the low salt bread thread and the one about salt in cereals if thats ok with everyone, then all the salt 'chat' is in one place.

Not sure. We get tuna in spring water - not sure if you can do the same for salmon?

Merge away - I think I tend to be the salt starter anyway :snigger:

I've been thinking about this over the weekend because I have just started giving the boys sandwiches and I wondered if anyone knew how hard it is to make your own bread? Do you need a bread maker? Also we have a seeded loaf, are seeds/nuts in bread ok for little ones. Not sure if the nut business is to do with allergies or choking?

FFS Indie, you have twins, you are breastfeeding them, they are wearing cotton nappies, now you want to make your own bread too? STOP IT, you put me to shame! Have a look at what Delia has to say on the subject http://www.deliaonline.com/how-to-cook/b…hite-bread.html (not FZ endorsed) Actually have a recipe for naan bread without yeast that I thought would be easy enough to start with so I might give that a go at some point.

And to answer your question, we give both our girls what we refer to as bread with bits in with no problems, but don't take that as the official guidelines!

Doesn't make me feel any better :blowrasp: Seriously you put us to shame.....

I think the official line on seedy bread is that you just need to be sure that they are not filling themselves up on high fibre foods and therefore being too full to have other stuff which they need. Watch for the seeds coming out whole in their nappies!

Nuts is allergies and choking. If allergies in family then I think you're supposed to leave it till they are three. The choking risk is from larger & whole nuts.

You seriously wouldn't think that if you saw the dust and washing piles in my very untidy hovel! :P

Thanks for the info Bubble, as for the seeds coming out the other end . . . .gross!

Think I will go easy on the bread as they do seem to be filling themselves up and they need room for that all important milk. I just think it's hilarious to watch them eating sandwiches LOL they are so tiny but love tucking in to a cheese sarnie. My dad was over today and couldn't believe it, we were in stitches especially as squeak takes tiny little nibbles and hold it in his mitts with his little pinky sticking out :snigger:

I wish i could get my dd to eat sandwiches. She used to eat them ok but then got clever and realised that she could remove the cheese and salad, eat that and throw the bread on the floor. She'll eat toasted sarnies though :snigger:

As a salt free alternative to breadsticks or sandwiches, we often give C matzo crackers which are just flour and water......she loves them with cheese.
