You should avoid using salt in baby’s diet till one year of age as their requirement of salt is very low, which can be met with foods alone. If you add too much salt, their developing kidneys cannot handle it. Similarly introduction of sugar this early can lead to tooth decay from the first tooth itself. There are chances of your child developing a sweet tooth and would reject other taste.
