Eating healthily can sometimes be a challenge, especially when kids are involved. Luckily, there’s an answer to the age-old problem of how to make healthy meals more enjoyable for your family – cheese! Cheese is an excellent source of protein, calcium and vitamins and minerals, including zinc, vitamin A and B12. And yep, it tastes great too! Let’s take a look at why cheese should be part of the diet for your family. 


Cheese is Nutritious 

Cheese is often referred to as ‘nutrient dense’ because it contains so much goodness in a small amount. It contains essential vitamins and minerals that are important for growth and development such as calcium for strong bones; phosphorus for energy; zinc for growth; magnesium for muscle function; iron for red blood cell production; Vitamin A for eyesight; Vitamin B12 for nerve tissue; Vitamin K2 which helps with bone strength; and riboflavin which helps with metabolism. 


Cheese Makes Food More Enjoyable 

The best thing about adding cheese to meals is that it makes them more enjoyable while still being nutritious at the same time. Whether you’re eating pizza, tacos or macaroni, adding cheese just makes everything taste better! Not only that, but it also adds texture to dishes like lasagna or quiche making them even more delicious. And who can resist melted cheese on toast? The possibilities are endless! 


Good For Your Gut Health 

Did you know that some cheeses contain probiotics? These little bacteria help keep our gut balanced and healthy by promoting the ‘good bacteria’ in our intestines. This helps digestion process food more efficiently and keeps us feeling fuller longer since we absorb more nutrients from the food we eat. Examples of probiotic-rich cheeses include parmesan, gouda, cheddar and blue cheese. 

To ensure you get all these benefits from eating cheese, make sure you opt for full-fat varieties instead of low-fat ones - otherwise you won’t get all those essential vitamins and minerals mentioned earlier! 


Enjoy it in your diet

Cheese is not only delicious but also plays an important role in providing essential nutrients to your family's diet. It's packed with protein and vitamins & minerals needed to maintain healthy bodies - plus it tastes great too! Next time you're looking to spice up meal times at home or simply want a snack that's both delicious AND nutritious - remember cheese is always an option! So don't forget to add some cheesy goodness into your families' meals today - they'll thank you later!
