    Default Should we serve steak to our children with salt or with no salt?

    Hi There
    My wife and I have a difference in opinion so I am interested in the wider opinions of other parents.

    We have a 5 year old and 7 year old.

    Should we be seasoning a steak with salt before serving it to our children or
    should we be serving it without salt?

    Neither child have asked for it either way.

    What would you do?

    Please share your opinion.

    thanks

    Salt, pepper and Olive Oil --- Nom, nom, nom!!



    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.

    No salt. Kidneys have enough trouble with the 'incidental' foods without adding it knowingly.

    If they don't mind no salt is healthier, but if they are not eating adding a bit of flavour might help

    We put salt on our kids steak, generally I don't cook with it but we do add it to steak, with pepper and grapeseed oil.
