In case you missed it, frequent reader of this blog, Mike, posted a link in the comments of my previous sodium blog to a report done by Men's Health Magazine on the 20 saltiest foods in America (thanks Mike!).
I thought it was worth posting some of their entries.

Saltiest Salad: Romano's Macaroni Grill Chicken Florentine at 5460 mg sodium, 840 calories.
Saltiest Kid's Meal: Cosi Kid's Pepperoni Pizza at 6405 mg sodium, 1901 calories. The recommended sodium intake for children over 9 years old is 1500mg and for kids 4-8 years old, it's 1200mg/day.
