Adding salt to meals and salty foods should be avoided under the age of 12 months as your babies kidneys cannot cope with too much salt during this time. However babies do require salt to form part of a healthy diet, this being less than 1g of salt a day which naturally occurs in foods and is not added. Herbs, spices, garlic, onion, lime juice and lemon juice are great salt replacers which help bring added flavour to the meal.
