We don't add it to anything, when I wanted some recently to clean a blister the salt in t he cupboard was from 7 years ago when I had my wisdom teeth out.
I agree with pp, there is so much incidental salt in our diet I don't think food needs it added.
With regards to seasoning though, I do often cook meat with a bit of a dry spice rub on it and many of those pre-packaged ones are salt based. Wouldn't do it for kids though.

Yes salt. I don't use it often but when cooking steak I most definitely do. We eat very well and avoid processed foods so not worried about a little salt here and there.

In my late 20s I started having a few problems, and when I went to the doctor, he suggested that they sounded like the symptoms for too much salt. I explained that I had very little salt in my diet, and he informed me that the same symptoms applied for not enough salt as well - but that doesn't happen in Western societies. I switched from salt-free butter to normal butter and if I felt bad, I would grab a packet of salted nuts or potato chips occasionally, and my symptoms disappeared.
I still dont add salt to my food but no longer look for low-salt varieties of processed foods.

I dont like salt really, so nope. I season our steaks with a special steak rub that my dad makes. It's spicy but my kids are partial to spicy food

No salt - As adults I find we add so much stuff to our food for flavours but I think it's good to start kids with the basic flavour. The only thing I would offer my kids with steak would probably be a bit of tomato sauce.

I wouldn't. I don't think it's terrible though.

I would. I think a bit of salt is much better than the salt and sugar in tomato sauce.
Not for tiny babies, but older kids, sure.

I cook with it, but don't add it to food after preparation. So yep, once my Bub is eating with us she will be having seasoned food (I grew up with very bland food and I can't stand it, it makes eating a chore lol).

I don't add salt to their meals but it is available to them if they want it.
Both my eldest dd and I carry a salt sachet on us at all times. She gets sudden blood pressure drops and I do when I am pregnant. One salt sachet works fantastic to get our bp up fast.

Sorry, I just realised this may sound a bit nit-picky, not intended to be mean I just think that many people dont realise that the majority of the salt in our diet comes hidden in food, not what we add on. Its The same with sugar.
