    No salt, unless they ask for it. I wouldn't deny them if they request it, but I wouldn't put it on automatically.

    We season all meat before we cook it.

    No salt.

    I don't even add salt to my meals and I am an adult.

    I'm wondering the same thing. I let the kids use salt and pepper to taste. Sometimes the use it others not.

    I don't add seasonings or sauce automatically unless a recipe calls for it as I like them to be in charge of their own tastes.

    ETA> it would depend on what the rest of your regular diet is like. If it is balanced and healthy, there is no harm from a tiny bit of salt in a seasoning, the body needs sodium. If your diet is heavily processed and packaged (assuming it isn't considering your concern in asking this question) - then avoid it.
    I agree with this - there would be more salt in many common packaged foods than what you add to steak. I much prefer to avoid packaged foods and add salt to my own home cooked meals. I don't add salt for my babies but for a toddler/ older child, I think it is important to have a small amount of sodium in the diet (again, this is assuming that they haven't eaten foods like hot chips, bbq shapes, etc, today!)

    No salt, but pepper yes! We are pepper freaks in this house. I rarely use salt, only a little pink salt when I cook rice, potatoes or pasta.

    I heard only a small proportion of salt in our diet is from a salt shaker. I would season all meat before cooking. Maybe for the baby I would make hers without salt especially but DS eats what we eat. I also add salt to pasta water, roast vegetables, etc. If possible I add salt at the table after cooking so DS doesn't get any but if he eats food that has been seasoned during cooking no big deal.

    I imagine I should be more worried about salt in baked beans, Vegemite, cheese, processed meat, sausages, etc.

    I want my daughter to have a taste for good food, so I have always seasoned her steak with salt and pepper as I would ours. Not seasoning it is a culinary sin in my books.

    I don't add salt to things just because... for years she had no salt on her hot chips, for example, but occasionally she'll get a light sprinkle if she requests it these days... I don't believe that seasoning meals with salt and pepper is going to cause any long-term damage to her health.

    It's important to me that my daughter enjoys good dishes... and I wouldn't eat an unseasoned steak, so would never expect her to.

    If she was trying to drown her food in salt I would overrule her, but I think she's so far got a taste for a 'good level' of added salt. She won't eat foods she feels are over-salted.
