A lot of butter is not good for you.  So just a dap of it.......Margarine is full or chemicals that I can't pronounce.  We use a little of butter.  When you look at the same amount of each....it is the same calorie.  It depends on which one you feel is okay for your system.  Margarine contains trans fats which are going to be banned soon.  Then they have to use another fat.

I forgot to mention that we use unsalted butter.
It depends on the person eating it.  People who have high cholesterol issues should avoid butter which is high in cholesterol.  People who want to cut calories go for the light versions of margarine.     None of them are really "good" for you to over indulge in but that's true of a lot of things.  Butter is more natural than margarine, so that's a plus for some people.

It depends on the person mostly.  I do not eat butter because I have an intolerance to it as well as milk.  Margarine has less cholesterol, but I use very little of it on a roll.  Butter does better in baked foods, but I then use the unsalted European type.
