I would like to try breadsticks with my 9 month old, but they all seem to have salt in them. Does anyone know any that don't?
I thought salt should be avoided until they are a year old or does it not matter in foods like this?

The salt quantity is the same as in bread, so if you've been giving bread then I wouldn't worry. Obviusly avoid the salt encrusted variety, but plain ones will be OK. Just check they weren't made with hydrogentaed fat.

My DD has been having breadsticks since she was 7mo. They have been a major sanity saver for mesmile

agree with brangelina re the salt thing. Breadsticks are a lifesaver because their little hands can hold them so easily without dropping them (too often wink).

Bet your LO will love them.

Thanks Brangelina and Snooks, much appreciated. That is useful to know. Sometimes it is easier to be overcautious with what I give him! Mind you, I tried him with egg last week and he ended up with bright pink ears, nose and eyelids. Guess will be avoiding that for a while!!!
Thanks again x

M&S ones seem to be v low in salt (and they taste nice)

actually, come to think of it, i'm sure there used to be some 'baby' breadsticks you could buy made by someone like heinz. ds2 is over 2 now so i don't know if you can still get them (apologies if you've already checked the babyfood aisle).

When you find some you like, smear Philly on the end of them - fab

you can make them, and reduce the salt

bread (sticks) without any salt is vile

you can put sesame seeds or herbs when making your own to increase flavour. Any bread made without salt is vile (in my opinion). have forgotton it on some occasions and had to make eggy bread and bread and butter puddings with it!
