According to ABC News:
The 12 soups for kids will have 480 milligrams per serving, which means the company can legally label them as healthy foods for the first time. "Your kids can enjoy Dora the Explorer even more," said Douglas R. Conant, Campbell's president and chief executive, said in an interview. "They'll be down to heart-healthy levels."
The sodium will be reduced by about 20 percent. Why is the company doing this? There is a push to make the soup healthier and it's a money making opportunity.
In 2003, it sold $100 million worth of reduced-sodium soups. Now, Campbell's says, the lower-salt soups are bringing in $650 million a year in retail sales.I am feeling guilty right now because I never buy the reduced sodium soups. I tried one a few years ago and thought it tasted horrible. I really need to get over it and try some of the new reduced sodium soups. I don't need all that salt and my kids definitely don't. They won't even know the difference.
Do you buy low sodium soups? Which ones taste good?
