The Addition Of Salt In The Preparation Of Children Aged 7 Months?
Hello Parida, thank you for the question for HealthReplies.com
This is simply not true. Salt is actually only recommended to be given to babies under 1 year of age if flavoring the food can help increase the baby's appetite. Salt administration when complementary foods are not mandatory. In addition, salt does not contain calcium so it has nothing to do with calcium levels in the baby's body. Calcium is obtained mainly from breast milk or formula that is drunk by babies, as well as from foods that contain lots of calcium such as green vegetables, fish, tofu and tempeh.
In giving complementary foods you are more recommended not to add salt or sugar (although giving is not prohibited). If you want to add salt or sugar to baby food, make sure you give it a small amount just to add flavor to the food.
So much information from me, hopefully it will be enough to answer
