I agree that Nathan's or Hebrew National (although I'd avoid the fat free ones, gross) all beef will be your best bet. You might even call a butcher to see if they make their own hot dogs, those are more likely to have less preservatives and nitrates.
Hebrew National 97% Fat Free hot dogs are pure beef...no fillers or by-products, no artificial flavors or colors...and they taste great....No trans or saturated fats....they have a variety...bun lenghth, jumbo and more...the best dog on the market as far as I know.....Check them out.

I don't worry about these things, we eat hot dogs so rarely that the odd Nathan's hot dog is not going to hurt my kids. ;) You don't have to eat perfectly to be healthy! One meal on a special occasion does not a diet make.
However, there are options out there. A quick google search found this article with some good recommendations for you:

We're planning a first birthday party for my adorable son. It'll be a BBQ, and of course we'll also have cake, and finger foods for kids (my son loves cheese, hummus, bagels, blueberries, bananas, etc.) But I'd love to be able to give him a hot dog too. Can anyone recommend a brand of hot dog that's relatively healthy -- not necessarily low fat (babies need fat) but low in preservatives, nitrates, etc? Also, we don't eat pork, so this would need to be either an all-beef or poultry hot dog. If it is low fat, I'd like to eat it myself too -- I don't need preservatives or nitrates in my diet either!
