it has a lot less salt than bought bread - this is one reason we got a breadmaker. Plus we use half the amount it says on the recipe. They do need some salt, but the problem with processed foods with salt added is that you very quickly get to too much.

have a look on for baby organix web site. It explains how much salt a baby should have. I think as long as the sodium content is less than 0.5mg per 100g then its ok.
I got the catalogue last night and it had a card for your wallet listing the Dirty Dozen ingredients that a baby/kid should avoid.
