Jamie Oliver is being criticised over the level of salt in his tomato sauce.

Jamie Oliver's Pasta Sauce is too salty
Article in the Guardian

The Guardian reports that, "Graham MacGregor, professor of cardiovascular medicine at St George's Hospital in south London, said he was shocked by the figures. MacGregor, who chairs Consensus Action on Salt and Health, said Oliver's tomato, olive and garlic sauce contained 20% more salt than Atlantic seawater."

I'm disappointed that Jamie has not ensured that the sauces with his name on are not lower in salt than other sauces. - I've just been looking on the internet and found a very low salt tomato sauce on this webpage: http://www.westcountryspice.com/products.htm

Here is why you need to protect your child from salt and salty food:
