She loves sausages but I'm concerned about how much salt she is having (did you see that dispatches about breakfast and all the salt in everything ) and I'd like to try her on bacon as she needs to gain weight but I know it's salty etc, and also nitrites not great (not sure why tho, can you tell me?). So how often? I'm thinking crispy bacon bits. I think she actually quite likes salty food... yikes.
Most bacon is injected with salt and water. I personally would avoid it but go for an unsmoked and rinse it first. As you probably know salt intake for this age is only 1g max a day - which is two slices of bread or a bowl of cornflakes - it can be difficult to keep the salt down.
