    Default Salt

    How do you manage salt intake for your mindees (those of you who provide food)?

    I don't add salt to anything I cook for them, but there will be salt in some of the foods, for example a ready basted roast chicken.

    Do you use unsalted butter?

    Do you use unsalted stock cubes?

    Do you use any other low/no salt products?

    I don't add salt to anything I cook and use unsalted stock ... because I make my own chicken stock.

    I do use salted butter, but most of what I cook is from scratch and I don't worry too much about it.

    The same I don't worry too much about sugar or fat content. We don't have much, but we do have some.

    You are good loocyloo. I started making my own stock when I was weaning DD but it didn't last long. Then I used to buy the baby stock cubes, but now I use regular ones.

    Have you ever had a family question you on these things?

    I only make my own because we tend to have a roast chicken every couple weeks and it's easy to make a few pints of stock from it.

    But I've never been asked about salt in food. I have been asked about using organic, but I prefer to shop local, which may be organic, but may not!
