I wouldn't worry too much - cheese has a lot of salt in anyway so a bit of butter isn't going to make that much difference.

Must say that I've never worried about using salted butter for the kids - we don't add salt to anything so they only get bits in baked beans, cheese, butter etc. I suppose you could buy a dedicated block but it would last a long time eh?

I'd just make the cheese sauce for all the family and sling the baby a bit too. Mmmmm, want cheese sance now!

I used normal butter. I am careful about salt but don't panic too much if something he has is slightly salty like cheese

we swapped to unsalted when dd was weaned, don't buy salted at all now.

I thought cheese was salty but I can't stand the stuff personally so wasn't sure. Don't mind it cooked/melted but as a hard lump....YUK!

Unsalted butter tastes rank IMO so maybe I'll just use the norla stuff.

I agree - we switched for a while but it's not as good at all. Mind you since I joined Sliming World butter is such a rare treat I'm damned if it'll be unsalted.

I like unsalted butter better anyway (I use President easy spread) so I never have salted in the fridge. Agree with the other posters though that it's a fairly small amount anyway so not worth worrying about much.

after all this the sauce tastes exactly the same.
