New study says babies eating too much salt

(KTNV) -- Many of us put salt on everything. There's a new warning from doctors about just how much may be too much.

Doctors say that many adults are eating way too much salt on a daily basis. Even more disturbing is that babies are too.

Findings presented to the American Heart Association say nearly 75 percent of commercial baby foods for toddlers are high in sodium.

Researchers advise parents to read the nutrition labels on the food they buy for their little ones.

It is also a good idea to taste it.
