they usually have quite a lot of salt/sugar. pasta sauce is easy, chuck in tinned/chopped toms, garlic, herbs (dried or fresh) bit of tom puree (i never even use onions as dh has too many friends who hate them) easy peasy and no added salt or sugar.

I think any packets etc. will have more salt and preservatives than home-made dishes. Have a look on Net-Mums in the recipes section for some easy alternatives:)

Yes packets and jars usually have high salt content, even the ones marketed to children.

When making your own try and make your own stock because oxo etc have really really high salt content!
