Is it ok to give a 20 month old toddler bacon? I am a little worried about the salt content in bacon and other deli meats. She just loves it and I see on alot of the paleo sites that alot of mums give their children bacon.She drinks alot of water after she has it so just wondering what you guys think about the salt and if there is a way of lowering the salt content in it? Cheers.

Thanks, I tried soaking it and it took pretty much all the salt out. Will try rinsing it or soaking at for less time.

Thanks! I only buy pastured meat and the bacon is nitrate free so it was just the salt I was concerned about. Cheers

And be sure it's bacon from pastured pigs rather than from factory farmed animals.

And the nitrates. Get organic bacon without any weird ingredients.

I give my children bacon. I started giving my youngest regular bacon when she was 18 months. I don't worry about restricting salt for health reasons, but if it's too salty for her taste, maybe you could rinse it before cooking? Or maybe you have access to unseasoned bacon.

I would be much more concerned about the bacon source (and toxins the pigs were exposed to and/or ate) than the amount of salt.

My child loves bacon. Has since forever. I wouldn't worry too much about the salt, but they do sell low-sodium bacon.
