When can you relax about salt?

As in, what age should little ones be before you let them share family meals made with stock cubes/jarred pesto/houmous/ritz crackers etc?

I use all of those already with my 10 month old. Not a lot, not all together and not every day but bloody hell, a half teaspoon of jarred pesto on some pasta isn't going to hurt anyone.

So I'd say... now?

Although not ritz I should say 😂

I would give them from about 9/10 months, but I would keep an eye on the salt in their diet all day, so if they were having pesto or a meal made with a stock cube at tea time, I wouldn't give stuff like ham, crackers, olives etc at lunch or for snacks.

I relaxed a bit after age 1 but I still kind of keep aware of what they're having eg not loads of ham, sausages and bacon in one day!
Local cafe sprinkles salt on the kids' meal chips which is annoying
