CAMDEN, N.J. — Campbell Soup Co. has reformulated its children’s soups to contain 480 mg of sodium or less per serving. The reduction helps the soups meet government criteria for "healthy" foods.

"We take pride in the fact we’re able to provide foods that deliver good nutrition moms want and great taste kids love."
The reformulated soups have 110 calories or less, 3 grams of fat or less, and 480 mg of sodium or less. The varieties include Chicken & Stars soup, Double Noodle soup, Chicken NoodleO’s soup, Disney Princess soup, Cars soup, Shrek soup, Dora the Explorer soup, Mega Noodle soup, Chicken Alphabet soup, Curly Noodle soup, Goldfish Pasta soup, and Goldfish Pasta and Meatball soup.
