All You Need is Cheese & Giveaway!

Trying to find ways to increase your children's dairy intake? Make it fun with Canadian Cheese! There are so many ways to eat cheese and so many different kinds available the possibilities are endless.

Canada's food guide recommends children ages 2-8 have 2 servings of Milk & Alternatives, 9-18 year old are recommended to have 3-4 servings. What is 1 serving of cheese? a serving is 50g or 1 1/2 oz of Cheese.

We eat tons of cheese in our house. On any given day we usually have 2 big 500ml blocks of cheese in the fridge, and a container of cottage cheese and Parmesan cheeses. Some ways our family likes to enjoy cheese - grilled cheese sandwiches, cheese cubes with meat and crackers, and including shredded cheese into our dinners like casseroles, tacos, pizza and pretty much anything that we can.

Another fun idea especially for young children is to cut the cheese into fun shapes with mini cookie cutters, pair them with fruit and veggies for fun finger foods.

A fun idea is to try making Cheese Crisps with/for the kids. These would be great paired with soup or salad or as an afternoon snack. I think these would go great with my Potato Soup recipe that also includes milk or creamer in it. You may need to play around with the heat and time especially I would think with the different kinds of cheese. I did find that baking them on a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper or a silicone make on 350F for 5-7 minutes worked well also. The kids loved these. Have fun with them and mix up different colored cheese and make different shapes.
