Sodium Information for Parents

Eating on the run has become the norm for many families. Parents race home from work, only to load up the kids in the car and head off again to the piano/hockey/dance/swim/ball/skating practice that night. If parents are lucky, they may have time to stop and pick up fast food for the kids to eat in the backseat on the way. Others nights, supper might be eaten just before bed and consist of a bowl of cereal.

What can parents do to ensure their children eat healthy while living a fast-paced, busy lifestyle?
